WASHINGTON, DC —The U.S. General Services Administration’s Technology Transformation Services today announced the seventh cohort joining the Presidential Innovation Fellows (PIF) program.

The 20 new fellows will serve as entrepreneurs-in-residence, collaborating with nine federal agencies on 13 different projects.

The projects include helping the U.S. Food and Drug Administration modernize and enhance its technological and data capabilities; helping the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs become more data-driven and better leverage AI; working with the Millennium Challenge Corporation to leverage the digital data revolution to enable partner countries to drive their own development priorities; and helping the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services modernize their technology so that they can share data across the healthcare ecosystem to support data-driven decision-making and innovative research.

“I am thrilled to have some of the nation’s best technologists and innovators join the Presidential Innovation Fellows 2020 cohort,” said Executive Director for the PIF Program Josh DiFrances. “Over the last seven years, fellows have worked to accelerate the adoption of novel technology within the federal government and save taxpayer dollars. Our new cohort of fellows will continue to build upon this work to help agencies create better products, services, and experiences for the American public.”
