"[I]'m going to be working very closely with all federal CIOs in terms of the agency level to ensure that they are advancing an agenda that embraces open government, an agenda that looks at how we can fundamentally revolutionize technology in the public sector and reject the view that the public sector has to lag behind the private sector." 1

- Vivek Kundra, Federal Chief Information Officer, USA, in 2009.

"As the country's first-ever CIO, Vivek Kundra faces significant challenges modernizing the nation's IT infrastructure and will be charged to do so at a time when self-interests and a lack of industry oversight threaten not only our freedoms and privacy but also the long-term innovation potential of IT." 2

- Paul Venezia, Senior Contributing Editor, InfoWorld Test Center, in 2009.

Introduction

In March 2009, Vivek Kundra (Kundra), then Chief Technology Officer (CTO)3 of the District of Columbia (DC), was appointed to the newly created position of Federal Chief Information Officer (CIO)4 of USA.

Though he had a less than two-year tenure as the CTO at DC, Kundra was widely credited with having ushered in a new era of experimentation by democratizing data and providing an open, participatory government wherein citizens could access government data and hold the government accountable for its operations.
