The White HouseAccording to FedScoop, the White House’s American Technology Council and Office of American Innovation issued their long-awaited draft report Wednesday to President Donald Trump on the efforts needed to continue to modernize federal technology.

The report reviews the current state of Federal IT and provides recommendations for new modernization efforts.
