“Our first project out of the gate, after I started as CDO, was completion of the initial statewide data inventory. As part of the executive order that created the CDO position, Gov. Hogan required a data inventory to be developed and updated annually. The initial development was an awesome effort by the agency data officers to collect and turn this information around in a short time, setting the foundation for many of the data management initiatives we’re looking to accomplish over the next year.”
