More and more federal government agencies are getting a “chief data officer” (CDO). NextGov interviewed five recently appointed agency CDOs. These are very brief overviews of the vast amount of data being managed by the government (the CDO for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services notes that they are adding about a billion records a month). There is no mention of preservation of the data.
