Department of Defense CIO Teri Takai will step down May 2, she announced April 28 to the governmentwide Chief Information Officers' Council. The DoD confirmed the announcement. Takai served as DoD CIO since 2010, and before that she was CIO of California.

Takai’s departure comes a month after DoD Deputy CIO Robert Carey announced he would retire from his position.

The DoD has not announced a replacement for Takai, nor any information on where she will go or why she is leaving.

In August 2012, Takai was appointed to the board of directors for the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet), but it is unclear whether she will continue in that capacity. Former FirstNet General Manager Bill D’Agostino resigned from the board earlier this April.
