The surge of money for the Technology Modernization Fund, a government funding vehicle encouraging modernization, means agencies will prioritize updates to legacy systems. Some experts say a National Technology Strategy is overdue to coordinate technology and innovation.

  • Ainikki Riikonen, Research Assistant at the Center for a New American Security who is writing about the possibility of such a strategy, said bipartisan interest is evidenced by the previous administration’s National Strategy for Critical and Emerging Technologies and a request from President Biden earlier this year centering around a National Technology Strategy.
  • Riikonen said having a common, repeatable framework will prevent improvising and provide a guide for agencies to deal with the emerging issue of technological competition.
  • Both parties can come together, Riikonen said, over technology strategy as it pertains to Great Power Competition (a strategic approach towards adversaries that includes renewed emphasis on nuclear deterrence and strengthening NATO and Indo-Pacific military capabilities, among other strategies).
