Federal 100: Robert Chadduck

Principal Technologist for Advanced Research
National Archives and Records Administration

Chadduck gave NARA a new window on the future by ensuring the agency has a seat at the table of the president’s Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) program.

The program, a collaboration of more than a dozen agencies, is driving the federal government’s investment in IT research and development. Chadduck’s efforts will make sure that NARA’s agenda, with a focus on the preservation of digital records, is part of the NITRD agenda.

"Bob is a tireless champion and a wise tactician for digital preservation and access," said Chris Greer, assistant director of IT R&D at the Executive Office of the President's Office of Science and Technology Policy. “He’s everywhere at once, pounding the pavement, surfing the Metro, and flying the miles to keep informed and rally the community."
