From the Document: "As of February 1, 2022, the roles of the Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Officer (CDAO), as specified in my February 1, 2022 memorandum, 'Initial Operating Capability of the Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Officer,' will differ from the roles of other OSD [office of the secretary of defense] Principal Staff Assistants (PSAs) as follows: 'Chief Information Officer (CIO).' CIO will continue to lead on core infrastructure, including cybersecurity, cloud, transport, and networks. OCDAO will help set requirements for core infrastructure and provide policy and guidance for the data, analytics, and AI that uses this infrastructure. The Chief Data Officer (CDO) shall be operationally aligned to the OCDAO, and the CDO's supporting office will transfer to the OCDAO; however, the CDO himself or herself will continue to report to the Secretary of Defense and the Deputy Secretary of Defense through the Chief Information Officer of the Department of Defense (DoD CIO), as required by Section 903(b)(3) of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020. 'Under Secretary of Defense for Research & Engineering (USD(R&E)).' USD(R&E) will set the technology and innovation strategy and investments for DoD - consistent with the National Defense Strategy (NDS) priorities and missions - to deliver technology solutions that enable the warfighter to retain technological superiority on the battlefield."
