Aneesh Chopra, the federal government’s first ever chief technology officer, is leaving the administration, the White House announced Friday.

In a statement, President Obama praised Chopra for his “groundbreaking work to bring our government into the 21st century.”

“His legacy of leadership and innovation will benefit Americans for years to come, and I thank him for his outstanding service," Obama said.

 

Chopra, who assumed the position in May 2009, helped upgrade federal government technology systems, and was part of efforts to digitize health care records and expand broadband access.
