Wanted to send a hearty congrats to DC’s very own Vivek Kundra. He’s been named by President Obama to the post of Federal Chief Information Officer (CIO).
He also will be charged with using technology to lower the cost of government operations and making government data more accessible to citizens, two things he championed as the District’s chief technology officer.
Definitely wish him the best of luck!!!! Hopefully he’ll really be able to cut through the BS and get some stuff done.
