On 22 July 1994, then 29-year-old army lieutenant Yahya Abdul-Aziz Jemus Junkung Jammeh came to power through a military coup d’état – having ousted the democratically elected President Sir Dawda Kairaba Jawara. For 22 years, Yahya

Creating More Responsive Government Organizations

whitePaper | April 13, 2020

Like many state governments, South Dakota has a large workforce. Managing payroll and benefits for 18,000 current employees and retirees is no easy task, and paper-based processes made it more complex and inefficient. South Dakota needed to move away from manual processes where employees submitted paper forms to HR personnel, who then re-entered the information into a database. State leaders wanted to transition to self-service tools that let employees do things like change their direct deposit information, update their tax withholding and provide a new address — all in just a few clicks.

Shift Left API Security Testing for Government Agencies

whitePaper | September 7, 2022

Application programming interfaces, or APIs, enable government agencies to seamlessly share data across federal, state, and local levels. They are quite frankly the glue that allows agencies to deliver services to mission partners, civilians, and even disabled veterans. Similar to how retailers create personalized experiences by integrating location, inventory, and payment data, government agencies also create contextual experiences for constituents and personnel by leveraging APIs. The impact of APIs can be seen across all major sectors of government, including traffic and transportation management, utilities, healthcare, social services, agriculture, as well as law enforcement. With the seamless connection between datasets and agencies, government personnel are able to innovate faster and drive speed to mission. How exactly? APIs reduce the workload and redundant operations performed by developers by allowing them to access data stored elsewhere. This enables them to quickly execute on tasks and take on more important projects of greater impact.

THE FUTURE OF AI REGULATION: THE GOVERNMENT AS REGULATOR AND RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT PARTICIPANT

whitePaper | March 3, 2020

Artificial intelligence (AI) systems have raised concerns in the public—some speculative and some based in contemporary experience. Some of these concerns overlap with concerns about privacy of data, some relate to the effectiveness of AI systems and some relate to the possibility of the misapplication of the technology. At the same time, the development of AI technology is seen as a matter of national priority, and fears of losing the “AI technology race” fuel national efforts to support its development.

How Do Sovereign Wealth Funds Invest? With Strategic Diversification

whitePaper | April 30, 2022

Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs) remain a prominent and diverse group of global asset owners. They represent unencumbered fiscal resources of the host governments, invested under a range of different mandates. In this study, we considered 34 of the largest SWFs, located in 26 different jurisdictions, which as of year-end 2020, have total assets of almost $8.5 trillion, representing 5% of total global markets.2 Between 2018 and 2020, total SWF assets under management (AUM) grew by an annualized 11.3%, as compared to 5.5% over the previous time period (Figure 1). We find that the acceleration in AUM growth is largely a function of market gains due to the post-2018 drawdown in equities. However, we estimate that organic inflows into global SWF holdings are roughly in line with the mid-single digits during the 2014–2018 time period.
