Improving cybersecurity across federal agencies requires staying on top of new and evolving threats. Now, the MITRE Corporation has a new public tool to further that mission.
If the government hopes to modernize its information technology, it will need good systems engineers.
In today's Federal Newscast, the General Services Administration is fixing a shortcoming of the acquisition oversight process by using artificial intelligence.
The MITRE Corporation has a summary of ideas and recommendations that attendees discussed at the Office of Management and Budget's Symposium on the Federal Workforce for the 21st Century last month.
The Pentagon’s Defense Innovation Unit-Experimental thinks it’s learned a thing or two about rapid acquisition over the year since its initial standup, and sees no good reason why the rest of the Defense Department can’t use the same techniques it’s put in place to award new contracts in 60 days or less.
A new study says the Veterans Health Administration has the structure to be a great healthcare provider, but it needs changes to make the system work.
A blue-ribbon commission's review of the Mitre Corporation's audit of the Department of Veterans Affairs says if the agency doesn't push for sweeping reforms with Congress' help, the VA can expect more of the same scandals that put it under the microscope in 2014.
When scandals over scheduling and poor health care reached a boiling point in 2014, Congress acted. One of its mandates in the Veterans Affairs reform bill was a top-to-bottom review of VA's organizational set-up and whether it was optimal for delivering health care consistently. That task fell to the non-profit Mitre Corporation. After it completed that work, Mitre convened a blue-ribbon commission to review its findings. Gail Wilensky was a co-chair of the commission. On the Federal Drive with Tom Temin, she describes the scope of the commission's work, and by extension, how deeply Mitre dove in the VA.
