Fed CIO Launches Technology Fellows Program

Federal Chief Information Officer Steven VanRoekel knocked off another point of his predecessor Vivek Kundra's 25 Point Implementation Plan to Reform Federal IT Tuesday with the launch of point 11, a technology fellows program.

The program is an offshoot of the government's longstanding Presidential Management Fellows system, a two-year program for recent Master's degree graduates that gives them the option of working at different agencies during their tenure.

VanRoekel has been a less public CIO than Kundra, who he replaced in August, but has quietly followed through on a handful of initiatives, including redefining the role of federal CIOs.
