G S A’s mission is to deliver the best value in real estate, acquisition, and technology services to government and the American people. To date, GSA has launched seven challenge and prize competitions, ranging from video and creative challenges to open data challenges. The federal-wide challenge and prize program is also managed by GSA’s Challenge.gov in partnership with White House Office of Science & Technology Policy and NASA’s Center for Excellence in Collaborative Innovation. Our agency’s Office of Innovative Technologies, Government Solutions manages programs like FedRAMP, Data.gov, and Challenge.gov. Take some time learn about the Data.gov, home of the U.S. government’s open data, where you will find data, tools, and resources to conduct research, develop web and mobile applications, and more. Read about the OIT programs and what you can do to implement these programs in your agency. Leading with Innovation. GSA is a leader of innovation in public service. For example, GSA was the first government agency to move to the cloud and to offer a process to streamline security of cloud services for the entire federal government. We are promoting an innovative, flexible, open workplace that will shrink the federal footprint while also serving as a model for federal offices for the future. In the coming year, we will continue to develop innovative cost-saving solutions that will be shared across the government.
