Jeremy Wiltz: FBI Planning to Create ‘Innovation Council’

Jeremy Wiltz, assistant director of the FBI’s information technology enterprise services division, said at a recent AFCEA event that the agency plans to create an Innovation Council, Federal News Network reported Monday. Wiltz noted that the council would be a diverse group of employees with IT and non-IT roles to develop innovative ideas and focus areas addressing the FBI’s needs. He added the council will provide the chance for employees to voice out their concepts and ideas to drive innovation within the agency.

According to Wiltz, FBI officials leading the council's establishment are working to “ensure alignment on mission, vision and goals prior to establishing a formal charter.” The group may be responsible to develop a strategy for implementing the innovation center concept to FBI’s offices in Quantico as well as other regions.
