White House scolds technology officer

The White House has reportedly scolded deputy chief technology officer Andrew McLaughlin for using a personal email account to conduct official business.

Information Week has reported the White House has said McLaughlin was using the email account for maintaining contact with a former employer, and this was noted by a media outlet.

“[The Office of Science and Technology Policy] has an excellent record of complying with legal and ethical standards, [but] one of our employees recently fell short,” OSTP director John Holdren reportedly said in an internal memo.

“It is important that we follow the rules and standards that govern our conduct as federal employees. The public has put its trust in us, and it is the responsibility of every OSTP employee to uphold that trust.”
