Anil Cheriyan, director of the General Services Administration’s (GSA) Technology Transformation Services, said his team has seen a significant increase in the demand for its services as agencies address their digital technology requirements during the coronavirus pandemic, FedScoop reported Monday.

“The demand for our services has really grown significantly,” Cheriyan told the publication in a videoconference. “A lot of the agencies that we serve are now beginning to face a significant amount of change on their own in terms of digital adoption, their own working from home, teleworking, as well as needing to put out a lot of information.”

He also cited the demand among agencies for digital services from GSA’s Centers for Excellence, 18F and Presidential Fellows Program and how the Login.gov team within TTS helped the Small Business Administration come up with a web portal for the Paycheck Protection Program.
