ACT-IAC Institute for Innovation to Focus on Strategic Government Technology Projects

The non-profit American Council for Technology/Industry Advisory Council (ACT-IAC) has announced a new Institute for Innovation, a project designed to support government use of information technology. Building on its experience as a public-private partnership working with numerous U.S. government agencies on long-term technology projects, the new Institute will focus on up to five projects per year

to address key issues with a high strategic impact on government and industry that affect multiple government business functions and/or organizations.

The first project is to be the Quadrennial Government Technology Review, which will

analyze key issues affecting government and provide recommendations on how technology can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of government in a time of diminishing resources. The recommendations will be provided to the next administration's leadership team and other senior government officials.

Following the structure of the larger ACT-IAC, the Institute is required to keep projects transparent and vendor-neutral. It will receive its funding from private member companies of its Innovator Circle and not-for-profits that are research partners.
