Perryn Ashmore, Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) principal deputy chief information officer, will temporarily succeed Jose Arrieta as the department's acting CIO. The appointment became effective on Friday, following Arrieta's stepping down as CIO, the department said Friday.

Arrieta's resignation concluded over 15 years of service at HHS. Ashmore formerly served as chief technology officer of the General Services Administration's (GSA) Federal Acquisition Service.

“We are immensely grateful for the work that Jose Arrieta did during his time at HHS, leaving a legacy of transformative advances in our department’s data work, better business practices that will save taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars and stronger protections for our department’s networks from cyber attacks," said Eric Hargan, deputy secretary at HHS.
