GSA Hosts First-Ever Technology Industry Day in Washington, DC

*Reposted from GSA.GOV

Private industry and government came together to find best ways to deliver 21st century technology to federal agencies On September 8, 2016 Administrator Denise Turner Roth of the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) hosted the first-ever Technology Industry Day to provide a better understanding of GSA’s path to improve the government’s outdated technology systems. The event featured how GSA buys, builds and shares technology for the federal government.

”The General Services Administration has a long history of being a strong leader in adopting technology in government," said Administrator Roth when giving her opening remarks at GSA's Technology Industry Day.

The General Services Administration had a simple message for its first Technology Industry Day: We're ready to do business. Through a series of panel discussions and demonstrations at the Sept. 8 event, the agency continued to convey a desire to collaborate with the private sector, extending an olive branch of cooperation to industry that sounded much like the promise of a good second date.


In a moderated panel, the leadership team shared their insights about the future of GSA’s role in making it easier for agencies to create and buy technology. The panel included GSA Administrator Denise Turner Roth, Acting Technology Transformation Service (TTS) Commissioner David Shive, Chief Technology Officer Navin Vembar, Assistant Commissioner of Integrated Technology Services Mary Davie and Executive Director of 18F Aaron Snow.

GSA Official: Federal IT Modernization Will Happen With or Without Legislation

Some federal IT is old- a few systems in government could push for senior citizen status if they were people-and agencies are going to have to modernize whether Congress passes meaningful legislation in the coming months, according to one of General Services Administration's top tech officials.
