2019 Fed 100

Federal 100: Kenneth B. Allen

Name: Kenneth B. Allen
Title: Executive Director
Organization: ACT-IAC

The great coordinator. Industry/government collaboration is critical in federal IT, and ACT-IAC serves as a central hub for that collaboration. Allen, who is stepping down after leading the organization for 14 years, steered an especially important group of initiatives in 2018, including several that directly support the President’s Management Agenda and the Trump administration’s cross-agency priority goals. From tech-driven solutions, such as zero-trust networking to policy-centric acquisition innovations and the block-and-tackle work of helping agencies make the most of their move to the Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions contract, Allen kept ACT-IAC — with its 6,000 government employee members and 455 member companies — focused on the collaborations that matter.
