Baltimore is known as a pioneer in civic data, with the OpenBaltimore data portal and CitiStat among the first programs of their kind.

Now the city is seeking someone to develop and implement an overall strategy for the city’s data.

Working in the Mayor’s Office of Information Technology at City Hall, the Chief Data Officer is a senior level position reporting to recently-appointed CIO Frank Johnson.

According to a job description, a main task is to develop a “comprehensive, centralized and progressive Enterprise-wide data strategy for the City of Baltimore that includes: Data infrastructure, management, accuracy, security and privacy; Civic data analytics, intelligence, integrity, visualization and governance; GIS and Innovation.” Among many functions, a key task is producing reports “that will increase the City’s ability to make data-driven decisions,” the description states.

The posting follows Johnson’s declaration upon hiring that he will “standardize and modernize” digital infrastructure in city government. He is tasked with stabilizing MOIT after the office saw four directors since 2012.  Mayor Catherine Pugh, who has lamented the state of the city’s outdated technology, also named Kendra Parlock as the new director of CitiStat over the summer and wants to expand that data-driven performance management program.
