2019 Government Innovation Awards

Learn about all the Public Sector Innovation winners

Government rarely gets credit for the tremendous range of innovation it drives.   But as the winners of our 2019 Government Innovation Awards make clear, amazing things are happening at all levels of the public sector.

The 40 Public Sector Innovations below include everything from AI-powered mission enablers to cloud-based reinvention to cybersecurity workforce development.  In some cases, the technology itself is transformative, while in others creative use of readily available tools is the game-changer.    All, however, show how IT and innovation can dramatically improve government.

We hope you enjoy learning more about each of these winners in the profiles below -- and that you're able to join us to celebrate them (along with the 2019 Rising Stars and Industry Innovators!) at the Nov. 7  Government Innovation Awards dinner
