For 27 years, the Federal 100 Awards have recognized government, industry and academic leaders who have played pivotal roles that affect how the federal government acquires, develops and manages IT. This year it recognized our own co-founder, Kartik K. Mecheri for his success in “Making GSA more agile.” Kartik has spurred agile development at the General Services Administration with an eye to boosting efficiency. He has been instrumental in helping GSA move away from traditional waterfall development to agile and other methods that stress communication, collaboration and use of the cloud. His influence has extended to GSA’s agile delivery team and innovation lab 18F. Essentially, Kartik and his team created a robust repository of proven, free code for federal agencies to reuse.
