2016 Presidential Transition Project
ACT-IAC undertook its third Presidential transition project under the auspices of the Institute for Innovation. As with the prior two initiatives, our goal is to provide the next Administration with insights and advice on how to improve government through the effective and innovative use of technology. The project leaders were Mark Forman (former OMB E-Government Administrator) and Roger Baker (former Chief Information Officer of the Department of Veterans Affairs). Scott Gould (former VA Deputy Secretary) and Sean O’Keefe (former NASA Administrator) served as senior advisors.
These leaders, with the assistance of ACT-IAC volunteers developed a series of issue papers to advise the next Administration. To read the papers, click here. For more background information about the project click here.
ACT-IAC also worked with an inter-organizational coalition under the leadership of the Partnership for Public Service to coordinate transition activities. For more information, contact Mike Howell at Mhowell@actiac.org.
