FCW : April 15, 2016
40 April 15, 2016 FCW.COM STEVE KELMAN Weatherhead Professor of Public Management Harvard University The procurement professor. It’s not easy to move the needle on something as Byzan- tine and sclerotic as the federal acquisi- tion system in the best of circumstances — let alone from 400-some miles away while battling an aggressive form of cancer into submission. Yet that’s exactly what Kelman, a former Office of Federal Pro- curement Policy administrator who now teaches at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, did in 2015. Through his FCW blog, Harvard lectures, social media and countless one-on-one interactions, Kelman shaped critical discussions on agile procurement, post-award contract management and cultivation of the acqui- sition workforce. KATHRYN KIENAST Principal Booz Allen Hamilton Shared-ser vices Sherpa. Kienast played a key role in advancing the federal dialogue on shared services. She led the work of the ACT-IAC communities of interest and brought her own insights to the Partner- ship for Public Service’s discussions on government/industry collaboration to improve the shared-services marketplace. Kienast was the personification of those collaborative efforts and was a key driver of the work that ultimately helped shape the shared-services strategy the Office of Management and Budget released in October. NOAH KUNIN Director of Delivery Architecture and Infrastructure Ser vices 18F General Ser vices Administration Agility architect. Kunin helped bring the open-source repository service GitHub Enterprise into the federal government back in 2011, and he spent 2015 pushing digital innovation forward. He was active in cybersecurity discussions with the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team after the Office of Personnel Management breach and in the subsequent promulga- tion of best security practices. He evange- lized DevOps as he guided the develop- ment of the innovation platform Cloud.gov and 18F’s agile delivery services market- place. He also helped promote a growing trend in federal procurement: making ven- dors show, not just tell, how their solutions will meet agencies’ needs. MIKE LEFF Vice President, Civilian AT&T Government Solutions Federal IT’s Mr. Fix-It. Leff leads a team of more than 1,000 professionals who help agencies achieve their missions — and his efforts were seemingly everywhere in 2015. Among other projects, he and his team developed a Census Bureau solu- tion that lets census takers deliver data in near-real time; created an Internet of Things solution for the General Services Administration to enhance GPS vehicle tracking; and used mobile technology to better connect veterans with medical care professionals at the Department of Veter- ans Affairs. Providing the personal touch at government scale is tough, and Leff was instrumental in doing just that. DAVID MADER Controller Office of Management and Budget Getting serious about shared ser vices. After 11 years in the private sector, Mader came back to government specifically to tackle shared services on a govern- mentwide scale. Agency-led initiatives had resulted in duplicative investments, uneven service levels, and a lack of tech- nical and operational integration, so Mader commissioned a cross-government study to identify ways to improve the manage- ment and oversight of shared services. Based on the study’s recommendations, he created the Shared Services Governance Board and established the Unified Shared Services Management office at the General Services Administration, giving shared services a long-needed center of gravity.
