Obama Announces Chief Performance Officer and Chief Technology Officer

President Barack Obama said on Saturday he would soon announce the elimination of dozens of government programs as part of a broad effort to restore fiscal accountability to the federal budget. To that end, President Obama announced a Chief Performance Officer and a Chief Technology Officer. Obama said Jeffrey Zients, a CEO, management consultant and entrepreneur, will join the administration as the government's chief performance officer and will also serve as deputy director for management of the Office of Management and Budget. He will work to streamline processes and cut costs, Obama said. Zients is a director of Sirius XM Radio and served as chief executive of The Advisory Board Company. He named Aneesh Chopra, the secretary of technology for the state of Virginia, to be the U.S. chief technology officer charged with promoting technological innovation.
