Kris Tremaine, senior vice president of ICF, details ways to bring a tech-savvy workforce into the federal government, and why change is necessary for the future.


On August 31, Federal agencies have to report to the Office of Personnel management on both the cyber workforce they have, and the one they need. Kris Tremaine, senior vice president of ICF believes that while attention is given to updating technology, attention should also be given to modernize people as well.   “We have an existing workforce, 10% of the technology workforce are millennials, those are our digital natives. Then we have the rest of the workforce that we have to either get retrained… and figure out how to get those skills modernized if you will. I think it is a real balance,” said Tremaine. “Change is hard for anyone. It’s certainly hard for people of my generation. If you bring the digital natives into the government as a start, too, and increase those numbers you will get a better dialogue and have a mutual mentoring of both of existing career folks that are there now in the government as well as mentoring for the millennials coming in.”
