Chief technology officer Aneesh Chopra to step down

This is an excerpt from a post by the Post’s Ed O’Keefe, who reports on The Federal Eye that Aneesh Chopra, the nation’s first chief technology officer, will step down:

The nation’s first chief technology officer plans to step down from his White House job, according to administration officials.

Aneesh Chopra, tapped to serve as the first White House chief technology officer, is stepping down in the near future; a formal announcement is expected later Friday.

The news was first reported by FedScoop.

Chopra is part of a trio of D.C. area tech and business heavyweights hired by President Obama at the start of his term to address government management and technological concerns.
