Fueling data-driven decisions, transparency, and operations across the U.S. Department of Justice
Advise senior leaders and create an agency-wide strategy to modernize the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) so that it can enforce the law and ensure fair and impartial administration of justice.
The DOJ's mission is to enforce the law and defend the interests of the United States according to the law; to ensure public safety against threats foreign and domestic; to provide federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime; to seek just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior; and to ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans. Within the Department, the Office of the Deputy Attorney General advises and assists the Attorney General in formulating and implementing Departmental policies and programs and in providing overall supervision and direction to all organizational units of the Department. The Presidential Innovation Fellows will report to the Deputy Attorney General Chief of Staff.
What are the existing gaps within DOJ’s legacy systems, and what is a structured way to implement change?
The Office of the Deputy Attorney General is seeking three Presidential Innovation Fellows to work on a set of cross-cutting challenges across the DOJ. These projects will be championed by the highest levels of DOJ leadership, and will include:
- Ensuring data-driven decision making through department-wide data and technology modernization, process reengineering, and trend analysis.
- Expanding external collaboration, outreach, and engagement.
- Developing innovative knowledge-sharing platforms, data dashboards, and systems for data reporting and analysis.
These Presidential Innovation Fellows will have expertise in data science and data management, as well as outstanding executive communication skills.
