California CIO Rising In Bureaucracy

Clark Kelso will keep his CIO responsibilities and take over those of the Department of General Services.

California Gov. Gray Davis has given state CIO Clark Kelso some additional responsibilities, naming him interim director of the Department of General Services.

As director, the 43-year-old Kelso will manage a department that consists of six divisions, 23 operational offices, 4,000 employees, and a budget that tops $500 million a year. The department oversees state E-commerce and telecom initiatives as well as the siting, acquisition, development, leasing, disposal, and management of state properties; architectural approval of local schools and other state-responsibility buildings; printing services; procurement of supplies needed by other state agencies; and maintenance of the vast fleet of state vehicles. The director serves on half a dozen state boards and commissions.

Kelso will receive an annual salary of $71,424. He has served as Davis' special adviser on IT and state CIO, a job he'll keep, since September. As CIO, he develops IT policy and coordinates collaborative IT use throughout the state.
