The General Services Administration is establishing a community of practice to enable federal government officials to share ideas and explore opportunities to advance the implementation of robotic process automation.
GSA said Friday that Ed Burrows of the agency’s office of the chief financial officer will chair the RPA CoP, which will outline the best practices and determine technical options to realize the benefits of RPA and transition the federal workforce to high-value work in support of a cross-agency priority goal in the President’s Management Agenda. GSA CFO Gerard Badorrek and Anil Cheriyan, director of the agency’s Technology Transformation Services, will serve as executive sponsors of the CoP.
“By creating a RPA CoP, the federal government can reduce duplication and streamline efforts to implement RPA across government to help advance agency missions today, and into the future. The GSA Office of the CFO will leverage the existing TTS CoP management capabilities and expertise to lead the RPA CoP,” according to GSA.
