The General Services Administration (GSA) has identified 22 federal employee-proposed projects that will be provided with phased funding under a Technology Transformation Services division-hosted investment program for enhancing technology uses in support of government priorities.
Some of the proposals under the 10x initiative are about enforcing climate and environmental justice and expanding minority-owned government contracting businesses, GSA said Tuesday.
10x's selection focuses on public trust and civic life; public lands and environment; and equity in delivery themes. Topics include public engagement in policymaking, environmental footprint monitoring for climate change effect mitigation, support for individuals reentering society and dissemination of civil rights information to the public.
“10x practices a unique approach for investing in government technology through a phased approach with iterative funding," said Dave Zvenyach, director of TTS. He added that the approach has led to the development and deployment of government-wide platforms.
10x received and reviewed 250 proposals from employees at 34 agencies. The program is established in 2015 to solicit ideas from the federal workforce to help improve government services.
