Margaret Weichert Pledges to Identify Tech Modernization Gaps

Margaret Weichert

Margaret Weichert, deputy director of management at the Office of Management and Budget, has announced her intent to validate gaps that hinder the government from updating technology policies, Federal Times reported Wednesday.

“While I’m here, I’m going to continue to look for those real cases where we have a use case that we need to get something done in government and there’s something structural in the way,” said Weichert.

She asked the industry to identify areas that will help the government optimize its processes. In addition, Weichert cited that information technology modernization efforts should incorporate agility, service quality and customer focus.

“If we only think about modernizing technology … we’ll fix something for a time that will then be outpaced by change in technology in the broader community.”
