Federal Chief Technology Officer in the Obama Administration: Options and Issues for Consideration
John F. Sargent, Jr. (au)
In Nov. 2007, Senator Barack Obama announced his intention, if elected president, to appoint a federal chief technology officer (CTO). He also identified several specific areas of responsibility of the CTO including transparency of government operations, computer andnetwork security (sometimes referred to as cybersecurity), identification and adoption of best technologies and practices by federal agencies, and interoperability of emergency communications technologies for first responders. On April 18, 2009, President Obama appointed Virginia Sec. of Tech. Aneesh P. Chopra to serve in the newly created position of federal CTO. The president indicated that Mr. Chopra would undertake roles beyond what might be considered traditional CTO responsibilities.
