On February 13, shortly before the Covid pandemic, a USPTO executive team met with industry to discuss IT opportunities and challenges. CIO Jamie Holcombe and several colleagues shared their vision and anticipated journey, and invited industry to help address challenges in modernizing USPTO’s IT for its important mission.
Mr. Holcombe and his team will share a six month update on progress made, and plans for the future. The team will shed light on its accomplishments and challenges in migrating from project teams to product teams, and provide details on critical modernization and stabilization efforts.
The agency has experienced certain changes since February’s meeting as new contract vehicles are awarded to support the mission of innovation.
