March 30, 2013 FCW.COM 19 THE FEDERAL 100 Roger W. Baker Assistant Secretary for Information andTechnology Department of Veterans Affairs Cost cutter. With budgets tight, Baker established a software acquisition team to create a technol- ogy road map and a new approach for acquiring and managing enter- prise software licenses. Some licenses had been in place at VA without major changes for nearly 14 years; Baker's team established timelines for negotiations and identi ed alternative approaches and software. In the rst year alone, VA saved $40 mil- lion from a single vendor. Baker shared the lessons VA learned with other agencies and helped them initiate their own software cost reductions. Kim Baldwin Sparks Director of the Authentication Division Of ce of Electronic Services Social Security Administration Speeding bene ts to baby boomers.

Since it went live in May 2012, more than 1 mil- lion people have signed up so they can check bene t and payment information and review estimates of their retirement, disability and survivor's bene ts. By reducing the need to print and mail such information, Sparks has saved signi - cant money while giving the public much-needed access to government information. Andrew T.

Individuals can use it to request informa- tion from participating agencies, track the status of their requests, le appeals, and search for other peo- ple's requests, appeals and responsive records. Battin and his team have created a service that increases transparency and supports the Digital Government Strategy. Capt. Judith D.
