TMF Announces New Investment Recipients to Improve Public Service

The Technology Modernization Fund has named the recipients of its latest round of investments to improve public services and operations in several federal agencies.

On Thursday, the General Services Administration announced that the Department of State’s comprehensive Consolidated Identity Trust is among those receiving funding from the TMF. The effort aims to transition the agency to a zero trust architecture by merging user attributes and implementing centralized workflows.

The other funding recipients are the Department of Education’s StudentAid .gov initiative, the State Department’s deployment of generative artificial intelligence to diplomatic operations and the Department of Commerce’s modernization of weather .gov, GSA .gov reported.

Federal Chief Information Officer Clare Martorana, a Wash100 awardee, said the TMF is funding a program geared at deploying AI and improving the security of the State Department.

Overseen by the Technology Modernization Board, the TMF aims to deliver innovative technologies to federal agencies to improve services provided to the American public by granting incremental funding, technical assistance and oversight.

In 2022, it invested in three modernization projects, including an upgrade initiative at the Department of Labor to streamline how employees access permanent labor certification services and the security enhancement effort at the Department of Agriculture’s program offices.
