FSA Computers, Again

FSA announced a new IT officer, with these words:
This position has become an important element of FSA's Modernize and Innovate the Delivery of Agricultural Systems (MIDAS) project. Over $300 million will be invested in the coming years to upgrade existing technology and streamline the Commodity Credit Corporation's (CCC) program delivery business processes. Gwinn will manage 630 federal employees and contractors and will oversee the implementation of off-the-shelf software systems via web-enabled network access.
I worked with the previous CIO, once upon a time. MIDAS is one of OMB's high risk projects.
