Reynolds Cahoon, longtime CIO at the National Archives and Records Administration, has left his post, a NARA spokeswoman confirmed.
Cahoon, who spent 10 years as NARA's CIO before becoming the agency's first senior adviser of electronic records in January, stepped down Nov. 10, the spokeswoman said.
As senior adviser, Cahoon
was responsible for educating the rest of the government about the importance of maintaining electronic records. He also counseled agencies on how to build records management functions into their enterprise architecture and information systems.
While CIO, Cahoon was a key player in the agency's massive Electronic Records Archive, a project
that will maintain, store, collect and make available electronically all records from government agencies.
