Pandemic Program

The Shape of Government Post COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is forcing us to think outside traditional boundaries and collaborate in new ways. That’s why ACT-IAC, MeriTalk, and the Partnership for Public Service are joining forces on Resilient. This one-of-kind, integrated program establishes a platform to provide recommendations on the shape of government going forward. The goal is to create a broader platform to deliver more value and bring diverse perspectives to drive forward-thinking solutions.

This public-private collaboration will produce recommendations at the intersection of IT and human capital in a post-COVID world. With innovation, security, technology, and workforce workstreams, this initiative will explore:

  • How do we adapt?
  • How do we prepare for the future?
  • What lessons have we learned?
  • What innovation, security, technology, and workforce changes need to take place to move government forward – beyond disaster response?
  • How does government help America become more resilient?
