The Technology Modernization Fund (TMF) announced three new investments that will optimize the user experience, ensure cybersecurity is consistent with federal standards, and reduce operating costs. Funding and support from TMF:

  • Help the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) improve and simplify the website for the site’s 22 million unique annual visitors.
  • Modernize the IT infrastructure of the Federal Housing Administration, improving the experiences of more than 95,000 external users.
  • Secure and control networks in ammunition depots, stockpiles, and plants that support the US Army.

“If we are going to achieve digital transformation for the American people in our lifetimes, we must think and work differently across the entire federal enterprise. Through TMF’s investments, we are demonstrating what is possible right now in modern government service delivery.” said Clare Martorana, President of the Board of Directors of TMF and Federal CIO. “Investments in OPM, HUD and the Army will address immediate security needs and improve customer experience and business operations by modernizing outdated systems – expectations we must be able to meet for our customers.”

“With these new investments, the TMF now has a portfolio of 31 investments totaling more than $500 million,” said Raylene Yung, CEO of TMF. “But beyond funding, we are working closely with our partners to provide them with expertise and support, while also training their own teams to execute these projects in a way that ensures maximum benefits for the public.”

“A user-friendly website plays a critical role in OPM’s mission to communicate the federal government’s policies, services and benefits more clearly and effectively.” said Kiran Ahuja, director of the OPM. “This investment will improve the government’s ability to recruit job seekers, provide the federal workforce with relevant career-related information, and make it easier for public servants to administer their benefits.”

HUD Identity Credential Access Management Modernization

A $14.8 million TMF investment will allow HUD to replace costly legacy systems with a cloud-based platform that will seamlessly integrate certain Federal Housing Administration Connection (FHAC) systems with This investment will improve the customer experience by creating self-service registration capabilities for users, organizations and application administrators.

“Tens of thousands of external users interact with HUD’s current FHAC components,” said Beth A. Niblock, HUD Chief Information Officer. “However, our current systems are overloaded, redundant and poorly integrated. The FHAC modernization will give FHA-approved lenders and business partners secure access to the services they need.”

Army Critical Infrastructure Cyber ​​Protection Project

The Department of the Army operates 26 Organic Industrial Base (OIB) sites supported by nearly 28,000 employees. These sites contribute an economic impact of more than $8.5 billion in the United States. This project will increase cyber capabilities and establish a security-as-a-service operations framework that ensures cyber defenders can monitor, respond to, and remediate cyber threats.

“The TMF funds will help the Army address this critical and urgent need up to two years sooner than waiting for agency funds to become available through the regular budget process.” said Dr. Raj Iyer, Chief of Army Information. “For the Army and its partners, this project will modernize and enhance our cybersecurity posture and improve command and control of critical OIBs.”
