Kathy Prager Conrad '81

Kathy Prager Conrad ’81 was named the principal deputy associate administrator of the General Services Administration’s Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies. Honored as a Federal 100 award winner by Federal Computer Week in March, she was previously senior vice president of Jefferson Consulting Group. In an interview with Federal Computer Week, Conrad noted that she was honored to have the opportunity to advance the Administration’s open government and innovation initiatives.

Her new responsibilities include fostering adoption of innovative technologies such as cloud services and mobile computing and enhancing use of government data to improve government and citizen engagement.

“This job and office represent an amalgam of the issues I have been committed to – including promoting government IT as an enabler, not as an end in itself,” she says.

At Wesleyan, she was a biology/psychology major.
