The Latest Wave of Innovative Minds Embarking on a Mission to Transform Federal Services through the Presidential Innovation Fellowship Program

GSA Introduces Newest Class of Presidential Innovation Fellows with Focus on Technology Upgrades

In recent news, the General Services Administration (GSA) has announced the members of the first of two Presidential Innovation Fellows (PIF) cohorts set to launch this year. As a key component of Technology Transformation Services, PIF is a program that recruits technology and innovation leaders from the private sector and embeds them at various federal agencies. These fellows serve as strategic advisors to government leaders, supporting them in their efforts to address national priorities.

The first cohort, consisting of 21 fellows focused on technology modernization goals, has been unveiled. A second cohort launching this summer will focus on artificial intelligence in support of 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 use their skills for the public good. They will collaborate with agency leaders to improve service delivery for the American people in their times of need.

Since its launch in 2012, PIF has recruited over 250 fellows who have made significant contributions to public service. Some examples include enhancing data sharing at the Department of Veterans Affairs and supporting technology modernization at the Department of Justice. The program continues to attract top talent from industry and bring innovative solutions to government agencies across the country.
