Federal 100: Dan Chenok
Senior Vice President of Civilian Agency Services Division
Chenok played an important role in the presidential transition, particularly with the Office of Management and Budget’s e-government and information technology office and OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.
He was a driving force behind the open-government agenda and contributed to President Barack Obama’s Open Government Memorandum. The memo ultimately led to OMB's Open Government Directive.
