G2X TAKE: With the recent announced departure of CMS CIO, Dave Nelson, it was only a matter of time until CMS began to look for a replacement.

Given the funding levels and highly visible nature of the role, CMS is certain to receive their share of applicants. Whether Hoffman stays or they look outside is yet tbd, but in the mean time it can be quite enlightening to read the job description for these SES level roles.
