Clare Martorana Federal CIO
Clare Martorana, the new federal intelligence chief, said the government wants to upgrade its digital services and cybersecurity by allocating a $ 1 billion fund, FCW reported Tuesday. These digital transformation efforts would use the impetus of the Technology Modernization Fund (TMF) required by the U.S. Rescue Plan Act.
The American Advisory Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council (ACT-IAC) organized a conference where Martorana talked about how new TMF funds can help agencies strengthen cybersecurity and adopt modern technologies.
“Making data shareable, adopting common standards and improving data management will be critical to the mission for many years to come,” Martorana said. Agencies interested in using the funds can submit proposals until June 2.
