Innovation and Technology Policy Center

The Innovation & Technology Policy Center (ITPC) was created to increase the prominence of issues of great significance to CAGW, many of which have been at the forefront of the organization’s work since it was established in 1984. The issues covered by the ITPC include, but are not limited to, aerospace, antitrust, biopharmaceuticals, broadband, information technology, intellectual property rights, privacy, spectrum, and telecommunications.

The ITPC reviews current laws and regulations at the federal and state levels of government since they affect the inventions and innovations of tomorrow, with a focus on ensuring that new technologies are created under light-touch regulatory regimes, rather than heavy-handed decrees.

The ITPC enables CAGW to take on special projects on issues related to its mission to reduce waste, fraud, mismanagement, and abuse in government.

The ITPC benefits from the leadership of Executive Director/CAGW Vice President for Policy and Government Affairs Deborah Collier and CAGW President Tom Schatz, who have a combined 78 years of experience in many of the issues that are included in the ITPC’s mission.
