Submitted by master on Tue, 05/01/2012

Prior to his appointment, for seven years Mr. Wash was the CIO of the U.S. Government Printing Office, where he provided principal guidance for strategic information system initiatives at the agency. While there he led the team that researched, developed, and launched the agency's Federal Digital System (FDsys), which is a secure digital content management system for millions of Federal documents from every corner of the government, increasing transparency and creating business value. He was also instrumental in leading a collaborative effort with the National Archives Office of the Federal Register that developed and launched Federal Register 2.0 last summer. Partnership for Public Service selected him as the Federal Player of the Week for his work in making tens of millions of Federal documents available in FDsys.
