2019 Fed 100

Federal 100: Ted Kaouk

 

Name: Ted Kaouk
Title: Chief Data Officer
Agency: Agriculture Department

Dashboard data master. In 2018, Kaouk led efforts to dramatically change the way USDA makes administrative decisions. He created 110 enterprise dashboards for all the agency’s administrative functions and, in the process, provided unprecedented access to data for agency leaders who make strategic decisions in the areas of IT, human resources, finance, property and fleet, procurement, operations and homeland security. He further unlocked his agency’s data by opening the dashboards to all USDA employees, which has dramatically reduced the amount of time needed to perform data calls and answer key questions.
