Martha Morphy, CIO, National Archives
As CIO of the National Archives and Records Administration -- she also bears the title of assistant archivist for information services -- Martha Morphy has responsibility for the agency's IT strategy and execution, including its Electronic Records Archive project.
For years, the National Archives' main mission involved cataloging and storing mounds of paper records, but the push is on to convert those documents to electronic format for easier storage, search, and access. The Electronic Records Archive should provide a new level of records transparency in the federal government, a goal of the Obama Administration. It's available now to various branches of government, in advance of becoming generally available to the public in 2010.
Morphy also oversees expansion of the National Archives' online services, with a goal of making it easier to sift through and purchase online copies of National Archive records. Her background is that of a true technologist: an MS in computer systems management with stints as software architect and director of systems development at National Archives.
