OMB, OPM and agencies partner to create data scientist occupational series

Federal IT officials badly want to make it easier for data scientists to find work inside the federal government. The latest evidence of this, Deputy Federal CIO Margie Graves said Tuesday that OMB has partnered with the Department of Commerce, OPM and "14 other agencies across the federal government to define what a good data scientist looks like, how do we partner with universities to create the kind of programs that create the pipeline that brings data scientists into the federal government and, most importantly, how do we upskill and reskill current population.” This comes in addition to a memo OPM released in June that gave agencies the go-ahead to add the parenthetical (Data Scientist) next to the official title for a variety of job listings.

Are federal CDOs being set up to fail?

But according to a new Data Foundation and Deloitte report, many agencies are assigning part-time CDOs, which it says will “undermine the intent and spirit” of the law. “I think it’s a very different role than the chief information officer,” David Mader, a chief strategy officer at Deloitte Consulting, told FedScoop. “When I think about the CDO, I think more about the kind of data that exists within the mission components of individual agencies.” Dave has this story too.
