                       Tuesday, December 7, 2004

  Mr. PUTNAM. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute to a dedicated 
public servant who has served this institution with distinction.
  During the 108th Congress, Bob Dix served as my staff director on the 
Government Reform Subcommittee on Technology, Information Policy, 
Intergovernmental Relations and the Census. In that capacity, Bob 
assembled a remarkable team of experts that assisted the subcommittee 
in conducting oversight on a number of areas crucial to our domestic 
and national security.
  Over a period of 17 months, the subcommittee held 39 substantive 
hearings, ranging from the implementation of the President's Management 
Agenda and E-Gov initiatives to the threats posed at our Nation's 
airlines and seaports. Bob was the lead staff member of my Corporate 
Information Security Working Group, which was a public/private 
partnership that was tasked with creating a uniform set of safe-
practice information security standards for businesses, government and 
consumers. In the process, Bob has distinguished himself as a leading 
expert on the cutting edge technology issues of our times.
  Bob Dix has accepted the position of Vice President of Government 
Affairs and Corporate Development for Citadel Security Software, Inc., 
and I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his service 
to the subcommittee and his commitment to public service.
