Govplace wins $109M USCIS cloud contract, survives protest

Back in July, public sector reseller and systems integrator Govplace won a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services contract worth $109 million to help with the agency's cloud migration.

Senate bill would limit law enforcement use of facial recognition

A new bill proposed in the Senate would put some guardrails on the use of facial recognition technology by federal law enforcement agencies. The Facial Recognition Technology Warrant Act, introduced last week by Sens.

John Zangardi is out as CIO of the Department of Homeland Security. Last Friday marked his last day. He sent a note out to his staff announcing his sudden departure, saying “After three decades of military and government service, I feel the time is right for me to try my hand at something different.
