The Digital Governance and Impact Initiative (DIGI) at New America develops technology platforms that transform the way institutions deliver value for citizens. We work with partners in government and the private sector to create modular, interoperable technology solutions built on open source code that address key challenges facing the public sector. We live in a world where institutions designed in the 19th century use technology from the 20th century to solve the challenges of the 21st century. It’s not working. We’re changing that.
Digital governance platforms have proven their ability to address a range of global challenges with astonishing results, often delivering unprecedented improvements in accountability, efficiency, transparency, and trust. Our goal is to develop, deploy and scale open source platforms that address core government functions ranging from benefits and revenue management to citizen participation. These solutions function as “institutions-in-a-box.” They can be deployed individually or as a package. Together, they form the core of an integrated, customizable government operating system that will help power effective institutions worldwide.
