GSA Launches New Class of Presidential Innovation Fellows to Prioritize Technology Modernization

In 2012, the General Services Administration (GSA) launched the Presidential Innovation Fellows (PIF) program, which recruits technology and innovation leaders from the private sector to serve as strategic advisors within federal agencies. The program has since recruited over 250 fellows who have made significant contributions to public service.

This year, the GSA has announced the members of the first Presidential Innovation Fellows cohort to be launched this year. These 21 fellows will focus on technology modernization goals and will work alongside agency leaders to improve service delivery for the American people.

Later this year, a second cohort is set to launch with a focus on artificial intelligence in alignment with the Executive Order on the Safe, Secure and Trustworthy Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence. GSA Administrator Robin Carnahan expressed excitement about how these innovators will work alongside agency leaders to drive innovation and improve government services.

The PIF program aims to continue leveraging the expertise of private sector leaders to drive innovation and improve government services. Some of their achievements include enhancing data sharing at the Department of Veterans Affairs and supporting technology modernization efforts at the Department of Justice.
