Announcing the 2022 Federal 100

Meet the women and men being honored for their exceptional contributions to federal IT over the past year.

Hundreds of nominations were submitted, and our panel of government and industry judges deliberated for hours. The result? A list of 100 women and men who personify what's possible in federal IT.

Every year, it's a tremendous privilege to be able to sift through all these stories. The pool of nominations shows the vast range of important work being done throughout the community, and there are always far more outstanding individuals than even a list of 100 can accommodate. That was certainly the case this time around.

You'll have the chance to learn more about each of this year's winners in the coming months -- via the profiles we will publish in FCW magazine and on, and in person at our May 12 Evening of Honors to celebrate both the Fed 100 winners and Government Hall of Fame inductees. For now, though, you'll have to make do with the list of names, which you can find below.

Congratulations to each and every one of the 2022 Federal 100:
