TMF to Invest $71M in Federal Modernization Projects

The Technology Modernization Fund has announced roughly $71.2 million in grants to upgrade legacy systems at the Department of Justice, the General Services Administration and the Armed Forces Retirement Home.

TMF Board Chair Clare Martorana, a past Wash100 winner, explained that the investments will improve cybersecurity, reduce federal workforce burdens and cultivate customer trust in the recipient agencies, the GSA said Wednesday.

The Justice Department’s antitrust division will receive $45.5 million to acquire new systems to keep pace with the growth of chat-based messaging in corporate communications, which increased the size of datasets.

GSA, the TMF’s parent organization, is expected to receive $19.7 million in funding to remediate security vulnerabilities in the eRulemaking Program, which includes Regulations .gov and the Federal Docket Management System.

Meanwhile, the AFRH is allotted over $6 million to implement a new electronic health record system to replace a decade-old one the TMF said is suffering from inefficiencies and a high rate of data entry inconsistencies.

According to Larry Bafundo, the fund’s deputy executive director, the grants reflect how his organization can facilitate agencies’ modernization efforts. He noted that the TMF is dedicated to making technology investments, leading to more simple, secure and reliable government services.
