Federal Tech Workforce Data

  

Each year more Americans rely on digital technology to interact with government — a trend that accelerated rapidly during the COVID-19 pandemic. As Americans’ relationship with accessing public services evolves, the U.S. government must hire a diverse set of capable technologists at all levels to meet changing expectations, including hiring modern technical leaders in key leadership positions. This page highlights publicly available data about information technology (IT) professionals in the Department of Veterans Affairs — such as employment numbers, demographics and costs. You can view other department-specific data here.
