Patrick Stingley became federal cloud CTO less than a month ago. The idea was to put someone in charge of cloud computing to support federal CIO Vivek Kundras vision of it helping cut the federal IT budget. But the appointment was a bit premature, and Stingley has returned to his role as CTO of the Bureau of Land Management. The appoint was part of the General Services Administration; that organization says the role was created and filled too early.

“It just wasn’t the right time to have any formalized roles and responsibilities because this is still kind of in the analysis stage,” GSA CIO Casey Coleman said in an interview today. “Once it becomes an ongoing initiative, it might be a suitable time to look at roles such as a federal cloud CTO, but it’s just a little premature.”
