Data Officer

Louisville’s Data Officer runs the city’s open data website, data governance team, data analytics projects, data warehousing, external partnerships, and automation across the city.

While private companies have had Chief Data Officers for years to save money, create efficiencies, automate processes, and use data to make informed decisions, they are relatively new in government. Louisville became the 12th US city to hire a Data Officer in 2016, and by 2019 there are 25 at the city/county level, 17 at the state level including Kentucky, and over a dozen at federal agencies.

Open Data

The Data Officer is responsible for the city’s Open Data website, including public feedback, data quality, proactive publishing of data, automation, working with department data experts, policy revisions, annual reports, updates, and data privacy.
