AGA's 2023 Innovation Challenge

AGA is seeking innovative ideas, approaches and systems that have potential to transform government at the federal, state, or local level. Innovations can be technology solutions or policy changes.

  • Do you have a great idea or solution that could help government agencies solve a complex problem or issue?
  • Have you done something that has significantly improved the efficiency and effectiveness of how your agency operates?
  • Are you passionate about promoting accountability, transparency, and innovation in the public sector?

If the answer is YES to any of the above, then we want you to submit your innovative solution to the 2023 Innovation Challenge!

Three finalists are chosen to present their innovation at the Technology & Transformation Summit (TTS). Our audience (virtual and in person) will vote in real time for the solution they believe can have the most positive impact in government.

TTS 2023 is scheduled for November 16, and submissions are due by COB October 16.
