Sheena Burrell

Federal Leadership

After a more than two-and-a-half-year run as the National Archives and Records Administration’s deputy CIO, Burrell in August 2022 was elevated to the agency’s top IT role, where she’s charged with overseeing the safeguarding of information and digital and natural digital records for the federal government. A former IT official at NASA and the Social Security Administration, Burrell is leading NARA at a time when the agency has embarked on a bold plan to digitize 500 million pages of government records by 2026. She’s also exploring how best NARA can integrate artificial intelligence into the agency’s work, telling FedScoop in August that she’s focused on leveraging AI with natural language processing, search and addressing NARA’s backlog reduction efforts. “We’re trying to focus on AI use cases that will benefit researchers, our archivists, and the American public,” she said.
