Demonstrating leadership in technology and innovation, five men and women from GSA are among those earning a place on this year’s Federal 100.
A long-standing and well-recognized government awards program within the DC beltway, Federal Computer Week’s Federal 100 Awards offers a chance at congratulating people from government and industry who’ve made a difference within the federal IT community.
At GSA, Administrator Dan Tangherlini saved millions of taxpayer dollars over the last year by creating more collaborative workspaces driven by mobility, and in the process, helping GSA lead government into the 21st century.
Federal Acquisition Service Associate Commissioner Lena Trudeau and FAS Telecommunications Manager David Peters, were honored for their work in leveraging technology to advance GSA. Trudeau led the development of a new eCommerce strategy focused on the delivery of digital services and led the transition of the Presidential Innovation Fellows program into GSA. Peters drove increased data access with better security and also provided for improved management of government mobile assets.
IT Specialist Marina Fox from the Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies led the way in creating a tool that easily allowed federal agencies to measure their web traffic. This all-inclusive program continues to be adopted, with $1 million saved so far as older, legacy, systems are discontinued.
Efforts made by Performance Manager Adam Hughes from the Office of Government-wide Policy offered tremendous support to the CIO Council which sits at the forefront of the government’s efforts around consolidating our data centers, advancing our nation’s cybersecurity, promoting digital strategies and moving agencies to the cloud.
Just over half of this year’s Fed 100 come from federal government – 52 from civilian agencies, 22 from defense and another two from Capitol Hill. The remaining honorees include 22 from the private sector and two from academia. Winners will be honored at the annual black tie Federal 100 Awards gala in late March in Washington, DC.
Congratulations and well done to each of our 2014 Fed 100 winners!
