Government Executive Editor in Chief Tom Shoop, along with other editors and staff correspondents, look at the federal bureaucracy from the outside in.

The Boldest Leaders in Government


Those who have dedicated their careers to public service often get little in the way of recognition. That's especially true in the case of risk-takers who go out of their way to bring innovation to the federal sector. 

Our sister publication, Nextgov, which focuses on how technology is transforming the federal government, is out to change all that. Nextgov has launched the Bold Awards, aimed at recognizing those who have implemented innovative, and at times provocative, programs, policies or management practices relying on information technology. 

The awards seek to highlights stories of accomplishments that resonate not only with federal employees, but the public. The winners will be people who defied the odds, overcame obstacles, pushed new ideas and made a genuine difference.

Do you know someone who fits the bill? Nominations are now open, until May 17. 

Tom Shoop is vice president and editor in chief at Government Executive Media Group, where he oversees both print and online editorial operations. He started as associate editor of Government Executive magazine in 1989; launched the company’s flagship website, GovExec.com, in 1996; and was named editor in chief in 2007.
