The New York Times is reporting that US federal CIO Vivek Kundra has been reinstated.
Kundra took a leave of absence from his job at the inaugural US government CIO last week after an FBI raid on his former workplace, the Washington DC CTO office.
As a result of the raid, two staffers who worked under Kundra while he was Washington DC CTO have been charged with corruption-related offences.
There was never any indication Kundra was involved in the activities the pair face charges over.
It has also emerged that in 1996, Kundra pleaded guilty to a minor theft charge, but under the law of the state the proceedings took place in, the matter didn’t result in a conviction.
