The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) reported earlier this week on the bonus the CIO of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) will receive this year.  James Seligman, the CDC’s information chief, is one of four CDC execs in line to receive a Presidential Rank Award, a cash award given out by the President of the United States and the Department of Health and Human Services.  Seligman was selected for his work “improving management and operations,” according to The AJC.  His cash bonus will amount to 35 percent of his base pay. The AJC story did not disclose Seligman’s base pay.
