TechMiso reported back in early March that the “U.S. Government Needs Visionary CIO Leadership for 21st Century Success.” At the time, it was widely speculated Vivek Kundra was to become the first CIO of the United States of America.
As expected, President Obama announced Kundra’s appointment to CIO on March 5th, 2009. Kundra’s stint as CIO however was cut short as the FBI raided his former offices for evidence related to possible financial misdoings as D.C. CIO. The FBI subsequently cleared Kundra of any implication, thus paving the way for him to work on President’s Obama’s mission impossible.
