When The Modernizing Government Technology Act went into effect at the start of this year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture stood ready to seize the opportunity. USDA IT leaders and innovators had big ideas for modernization and the MGT Act was the vehicle to help them deliver. In this session, USDA CIO Gary Washington will share the department’s journey from securing funding through the Technology Modernization Funds to standing up the IT Modernization Centers of Excellence to now moving into the second phase of implementing the Centers.
