Developing innovations to facilitate data-driven decision-making, promote transparency, and optimize operations

Advise senior leaders and create an agency-wide strategy to modernize the U.S. Department of Justice so that it can enforce the law and ensure fair and impartial administration of justice.

About DOJ

The U.S. Department of Justice'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 fellows will report to the Chief of Staff to the Deputy Attorney General.

The challenge

What are the existing gaps within the U.S. Department of Justice'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 Department of Justice. These projects will be championed by the highest levels of DOJ leadership, and will include:

  1. Ensuring the primacy of data in decision-making, through Department-wide data and technology modernization, process reengineering, and trend analysis.
  2. Expansion of external collaboration, outreach, and engagement.
  3. Development of innovative knowledge-sharing platforms, data dashboards, and systems for data reporting and analysis.
