Chief Architect

Paul led the government’s efforts to encourage agencies to participate in one of the Obama administration’s flagship initiatives, Data.gov, and he helped identify and resolve potential issues ahead of time.

Paul also contributed to several other high-priority projects that are crucial to improving government transparency.
