Technology CEO Council Points Trump Team to $1 Trillion in Savings for Federal Government Operations

The Technology CEO Council (TCC) today released a new report with recommendations on ways the federal government can reduce costs by over $1 trillion on operations over the next decade while improving the reach and quality of its services. The group has also shared its analysis with key members of President-elect Donald J. Trump’s transition team, including Vice President-elect Mike Pence and incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.

The report, The Government We Need, demonstrates how current technologies enable faster, more informed-and-efficient decision-making, more productive coordination among agencies, improved physical and digital security and more responsive services for citizens.

“Advanced information technologies are providing dramatic competitive advantages to businesses in virtually every industry imaginable,” said D. Mark Durcan, TCC Chairman and Chairman & CEO of Micron Technology. “We see clear and proven implementation paths where our federal government can take advantage of these same efficiencies. Modernizing our infrastructure is critical to our future as a nation.”

The report also offers real-world examples of private sector entities and government agencies around the world that have met their missions more quickly, at a lower cost and with less risk by implementing modern, interconnected processes and systems.

"We are living through a period of profound change, where cognitive computing systems and the efficiency of the cloud are transforming entire industries.” said Ginni Rometty, Chairman, President and CEO of IBM. “Technologies like these are helping us make better decisions than ever before. These trends can make our government more efficient, with a potential $1 trillion in savings, and can empower agencies to provide faster, modern, more personalized services."

The report includes estimates for the scope and scale of potential cost reductions that could be realized, summarized in the chart below.

Cost Reduction Area         Est. 10-Year Cost Reduction
Supply Chain and Acquisition         $500 Billion
Fraud and Improper Payments Prevention         $270 Billion
