| PSC Applauds Senate Passage of the Modernizing Government Technology Act
Arlington, V.A -
The Professional Services Council (PSC) issued the following statement regarding the Senate’s passage of the Modernizing Government Technology (MGT) Act via the National Defense Authorization Act:
"PSC applauds the Senate’s action approving the MGT Act and the progress toward vital IT modernization,” said Alan Chvotkin, Executive Vice President and Counsel of PSC, the voice of the government technology and professional services industry. “The Senate’s actions take us closer to enactment, which will provide a dedicated funding stream for federal agencies to harness new technologies, reduce government costs and vulnerabilities, and improve efficiency and performance. We look forward to enactment of the MGT Act by Congress."
After unanimous House passage of the bill in May, PSC sent a letter to U.S. Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee leaders urging quick action to approve the MGT Act. PSC’s letter followed public remarks made by White House senior adviser Jared Kushner that the Trump Administration is actively working with the U.S. Senate to send the MGT Act to the President’s desk for signature into law.
