Aneesh Chopra has been the federal chief technology officer for less than a month. To that end, his priorities and plans still are under development.

Chopra says he does have four main priorities, including instilling a culture of innovation in the government, ensuring a reliable and resilient infrastructure and promoting an open and transparent government.

Chopra will work horizontally across the government and in to the state and local governments to create innovation platforms.

He says later this summer his office and the Office of Management and Budget will announce a set of policy recommendations.
