Federal 100: Eric Byungkee Cho

Eric Cho

Name: Eric Byungkee Cho
Title: Counsel for Acquisition Policy
Oversight and Government Reform Committee
Agency: U.S. House of Representatives

A force for FITARA. Cho was a key player behind the scenes on the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act, which went through multiple iterations as it moved from a draft proposal to finished legislation in a bitterly divided Congress. He was instrumental in collecting and synthesizing feedback and advancing the bill across party lines and across chambers of Congress. Cho has since left the Hill, but it's good that he waited. According to one of his legislative colleagues: "If Eric hadn't been there, FITARA wouldn't have gotten done."
