Each agency should establish a senior officer in charge of dissemination/transparency, tasked to balance information and dissemination regimes, with a particular emphasis on transparency.
This would be a new agency position, possibly within the office of the agency’s Chief Information Officer. Additionally, as new CIOs are appointed, they should be required to have at least as much expertise in information policy areas as in technology areas. Working with the CIO, this officer should be able to approve and disapprove programs and system acquisitions.
