Announcing the 2024 Federal 100

Every year for more than three decades, a panel of government and industry technology stalwarts gather in a conference room one Saturday in January to pore over the hundreds of nominations submitted to the annual Federal 100 awards. It’s an all-volunteer effort that is driven by the passion for excellence in the federal IT community.

The result? A list of 100 individuals who personify what’s possible in federal IT.

The pool of nominations spotlights the range of important work being done throughout the community, and also reflects trends in technology and tech policy. This year we saw winning nominations for achievements in cybersecurity, customer experience, service delivery and artificial intelligence. As always, there were far more outstanding nominations than a list of 100 can accommodate. 

You’ll have the chance to learn more about each of this year’s winners in the coming months — via the profiles we will publish in the Nextgov/FCW magazine and on Nextgov.com, as well as in person at our Evening of Honors on April 24 to celebrate the Fed 100 winners and Government Hall of Fame inductees. 

For now, you’ll have to make do with the list of names, which you can find below. The titles and organizations listed reflect the roles these individuals held in 2023 when doing the work that earned this recognition — although some may have moved on to other positions or even retired.

Congratulations to each and every one of the 2024 Federal 100!
