Federal 100: Dan Chenok

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.

Chenok also advised key government officials, and his insights on government IT were important to how the Obama administration worked on its reforms.

“As a former government executive, Dan worked passionately to help improve government by providing key insights and solutions for solving emerging issues,” said Venkatapathi Puvvada, vice president and managing partner at Unisys Federal Systems.
