The Technology Modernization Fund (TMF) has announced investments worth US$ 71 million into the Department of Justice (DoJ), General Services Administration (GSA), and Armed Forces Retirement Home (AFRH) to address security vulnerabilities and deliver better customer experience.
“These TMF investments will strengthen cybersecurity, reduce burden for the Federal workforce so they can focus on mission, and improve trust with the millions counting on the DOJ, GSA, and the Armed Forces Retirement Home to deliver government services,” Clare Martorana, Federal CIO, and TMF Board Chair.
Established in 2018, TMF offers fiscal support to agencies for the modernization of outdated federal information systems. Additionally, it extends technical assistance and oversight throughout project implementation, ensuring the success of its investments.
Around US$ 45.5 million of the total investment will go towards DoJ’s Antitrust Division (ATR) to help leverage emerging technologies to help the agency better enforce the country’s antitrust laws.
GSA, on the other hand, will be allocated US$ 19.7 million to tackle immediate security vulnerabilities and ensure service continuity. Simultaneously, GSA will initiate a multi-year initiative to transition to an upgraded architecture, enhancing support for both public and government users.
Lastly, approximately US$ 6 million will be allocated to AFRH to implement a modernized, interoperable EHR system. This initiative aims to empower AFRH's 500+ strong employees and contractors, enhancing their ability to deliver quality care and services to residents.
So far, TMF has invested over US$ 800 million in 51 projects across 29 federal agencies.
