Title: IT Project Manager, Alien Criminal Response Information Management System
Agency: Department of Homeland Security

DHS' criminal database expert. Using agile software development, Bushey paved the way for Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers to query multiple federal, state and local law enforcement databases when processing illegal immigrants who have criminal records. Bushey led a team of six government and industry professionals to successfully modernize and expand ACRIMe while spending only $3 million on a $28 million project. It has been praised as a best practice for federal agencies looking to implement agile development, and it offers a smart alternative that is both customer-focused and efficient.
