2020 Fed 100

Federal 100: Timothy W. Cooke, Ph.D.


Name: Timothy W. Cooke
Title: CEO
Organization: ASI Government

Acquisition alchemist. Cooke is a tireless advocate for improving the art and science of federal acquisition. In 2019, he led an ACT-IAC Institute for Innovation project that resulted in the creation of the Periodic Table of Acquisition Innovations. The table offers examples and techniques for every stage of the acquisition process, making it easier for agencies to meet the goals in the President's Management Agenda while keeping up with emerging technologies. The table's creation was sponsored by the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, which will take ownership of it in 2020 and ensure its sustainability as a resource for the acquisition community.
