ACT-IAC’s Agenda 2021 Project: Government imperatives that transcend the change in administration

Over the last year, ACT-IAC leaders have given a lot of thought to both the crucial initiatives that need to continue regardless of the change in administration, as well as the new issues and challenges that must be addressed in the years ahead.

ACT-IAC’s Agenda 2021 Project has highlighted issues that transcends parties and politics – top priorities for our nation and the federal technology market.

The Agenda 2021 Project work has resulted in a capstone paper, “Delivering Outcomes, Building Trust,” and three supporting papers, “Improving Customer Experience and Transforming Service Delivery,” “Accelerating Agility In Government” and “Transforming Infrastructure And Managing Risk” – all of which are available at:
