Labor scores TMF award

The Technology Modernization Fund Board issued the Department of Labor a $9.6 million award to update its enterprise data platform, less than a day after lawmakers put a historic $1 billion into the funding vehicle. DOL will use its funds to improve the availability and accessibility of data for other agencies, developers and researchers, as well as improve evidence-based decision making across its enforcement, compliance and unemployment insurance missions. “Technology is a key enabler for government in providing better services to the American public,” said David Shive, chief information officer at the General Services Administration and a TMF Board member, in the announcement. “The news of the Technology Modernization Fund getting a $1 billion boost from the American Rescue Plan couldn’t have come at a better time, and the TMF Board looks forward to receiving more project proposals like this one from DOL to consider for investment.” Dave Nyczepir has more.

Coast Guard make good on 'tech revolution'

Part of its "tech revolution," the U.S. Coast Guard is making a major push to modernize its operations and systems. Adm. Karl Schultz, the commandant of the Coast Guard, said the guard is working to install Wi-Fi on its cutters to increase connectivity. On top of this, it is replacing old desktops in command posts with mobile “two-in-one tablets” that will give leaders the ability to work from anywhere. “In the past year, we’ve migrated to a cloud-based suite of collaboration tools and have increased the ability to connect our workforce, whether that be improved cutter connectivity both underway and in-port, or greatly enhanced telework capability,” the commandant said. Jackson Barnett reports.

Army's Cyber Quest 2021

Army Futures Command recently wrapped up Cyber Quest 2021, bringing in users from across the service to test 15 new technologies from more than a dozen vendors, senior leaders told reporters Monday. Many of the lessons learned from the 13-day event will be put into procurement requirements documents for new technologies the Army is focused on as part of its broader strategy to deter great power conflict. One of the exercises during the event had a platoon of soldiers tasked with defending an airbase in the Indo-Pacific against a simulated attack. The team was able to operate anti-jamming radios and track enemy movements by their electromagnetic signatures. Jackson has this too.


Government agencies harness RPA ‘bots’ to build capacity, improve services

Federal and state government workers are seeing the benefits of digital robots designed to streamline agency workloads and quicken the delivery of public services, according to a new survey.

The findings suggest that among RPA’s benefits is the ability to help budget-constrained agencies boost the capacity of their existing workforce. Learn more about the findings.
