Kshemendra Paul
Chief Architect
Office of Management and Budget

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. He helped create Recovery.gov to track agencies' spending under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and promoted ways to enhance information sharing through the National Information Exchange Model.
