Federal 100: Shaun Donovan

Shaun Donovan
Secretary
Housing and Urban Development Department

Donovan advocated in 2009 for a major, multiyear program to transform business and information technology at the Housing and Urban Development Department.

The Transformation Initiative invests in gathering better data to critique government programs and build the in-house know-how needed to improve those programs. The initiative would also help HUD integrate its departmental strategies. Finally, the initiative directs money to develop the next generation of technological systems that will help the department serve taxpayers.

Donovan went to Congress to garner support to fund the initiative. And he got it.

“His efforts resulted in substantial new funding and legislative language that supports rapid but incremental transformation following best practices in the industry and government,” said Jerry Williams, HUD's chief information officer.
