digital governmentMikey Dickerson, administrator of the U.S. Digital Service, has said the organization needs more technology professionals who can help federal agencies transform public service delivery.

Dickerson wrote in a White House blog post published Wednesday that the service is working on digital tools to aid the government’s efforts to address the backlog in veterans’ disability, climate change and the Ebola crisis.
