Action Item List for New AFRL CIO | DEIA and the Employee Experience | AI, FedRAMP & the Future of Federal Acquisition


The Air Force Research Laboratory has a new Chief Information Officer. Alexis Bonnell has served in government before, including as Chief Innovation Officer at the US Agency for International Development. At ELC 2023, I ask her about her priority list in her new job.

The President’s Management Agenda includes a pillar on rebuilding the federal workforce. One element of that is a focus on diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility. Isaac Hernandez is Senior Risk Advisor at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. He spoke on a panel at ELC 2023 on “DEIA and the Employee Experience.” At the conference, I ask him what message he wants people to take away from that panel.

The new artificial intelligence Executive Order and the new draft guidance on updating FedRAMP are two of the newest items that will impact the Federal Acquisition Service at the General Services Administration. The Commissioner of FAS, Sonny Hashmi, spoke about those items and many others on the main stage at ELC 2023. After his remarks on stage, I asked him what his main message was.
