Submission + - Federal Reserve to Hire Chief Data Officer (informationweek.com)

CowboyRobot writes: "The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System wants to hire a chief data officer to usher the organization through the big data era, saying that the new CDO position should address everything from managing the massive quantity of data that the Fed is collecting and analyzing and sharing that data, making Fed employees more aware of what data is available, setting policies for data security and controls, and ensuring better data quality. Other government agencies have recently committed to CDO positions. The NIH announced in January that it planned to hire a new associate director for data science. The Federal Communications Commission has an agency-wide chief data officer as well as chief data officers for each FCC bureau. Other federal agencies that have chief data officers include the Army and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and the Commodity Futures Trading Corporation."
