NSF Announces CIO Office to Support Science, Tech Innovation Pursuits

The National Science Foundation has announced a new office to help the organization support scientific and technological advancements.

The Office of the Chief Information Officer is an independent and consolidated entity designed to lead the NSF’s pursuit of innovation and efficiency. Terry Carpenter was selected as CIO and chief technology officer.

Other appointments include Dorothy Aronson as chief data officer and assistant CIO for artificial intelligence, Dan Hofherr as chief information security officer and assistant CIO for operations and Teresa Guillot as assistant CIO for enterprise services.

The reorganization is supported by the CHIPS and Science Act, the NSF said.

The introduction of the OICO follows another reorganization move from the NSF designed to enhance the organization’s AI oversight.

In December, the NSF appointed Tess deBlanc-Knowles as special assistant to the director for AI. She will lead efforts to address AI-related issues, implement an AI-related executive order, facilitate collaboration on AI initiatives and ensure that the agency continues to engage with ongoing national processes around the emerging technology.
