Just reported for Internetnews :

DC CTO named as Obama Administration’s CIO

The Obama administration has named Vivek Kundra to be the the first-ever White House-level chief information officer.

Kundra is currently chief technology officer for Washington, DC’s city government, and has risen in the public eye because of his innovative approaches to managing the city’s technology projects. As the first-ever Federal Chief Information Officer, he’ll be responsible for managing the entire federal government’s technology portfolio and budget, and overseeing its enterprise architecture.

Nicely done! Nicely takes over as ODNI CIO while Gorman is on leave

The irrepressible Bob Brewin reports over on NextGov that Sherrill Nicely, deputy chief information officer at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, “has assumed the role of acting CIO while Patrick Gorman, the acting CIO, is on leave. ODNI did not say why Gorman was on leave or for how long.”

Gorman was acting CIO. Does that mean that Nicely is now the acting acting CIO?
