Revolutionizing Public Service: The Presidential Innovation Fellows Program Tackles Technology Modernization and AI

GSA Introduces Newest Class of Presidential Innovation Fellows with Focus on Technology Upgrades

In 2012, the General Services Administration launched the Presidential Innovation Fellows program, which recruits technology and innovation leaders from the private sector and embeds them at various federal agencies. These fellows serve as strategic advisers to government leaders as they address national priorities. This year’s first cohort is the 12th PIF class overall and consists of 21 fellows focused on technology modernization goals.

PIF has made significant contributions to public service over the years, with over 250 fellows enhancing data sharing at the Department of Veterans Affairs and supporting technology modernization at the Department of Justice. The second cohort launching this summer will focus on artificial intelligence in support of the Executive Order on the Safe, Secure and Trustworthy Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence.

GSA Administrator Robin Carnahan expressed excitement about how these innovators will use their skills for the public good. They will collaborate with agency leaders to improve service delivery for the American people in their times of need. This year’s first cohort represents a continued commitment by PIF to leveraging talent from industry to drive positive change in government.
