Federal 100: Vivek Kundra

Vivek Kundra
Federal CIO and Administrator of E-Government and IT
Office of Management and Budget

Vivek Kundra has been an impact player. Since joining the Obama administration as the government’s first CIO, Kundra has been in constant motion, championing one initiative after another, including cloud computing, transparency, metrics and data center consolidation.

But in December 2010, Kundra got everyone’s attention — inside the Washington Beltway and beyond — when he rolled out the administration’s much-anticipated 25-point plan for reforming IT management. The initiative, which pulls together some ideas that have been floated before, provides an IT road map for the next two years. It focuses on shorter procurement cycles, better program management and improved government/industry communications.

Kundra got kudos for spearheading an extensive outreach effort that gave industry groups and agency stakeholders ample opportunity to weigh in on the plan.
