About the Gala
Government Hall of Fame Gala

Honoring Dedication to Public Service

The federal government’s roles and missions extend far and wide, including protecting and defending the United States, transforming service delivery, exploring space, gathering weather and climate data, and overseeing massive health and social welfare programs. For over fifty years, GovExec has been front-and-center as government has evolved, mis-stepped, and achieved.

In 2022, we are excited to honor the people in government who have done the most to make it all possible. As the first ever union of the Government Hall of Fame and The Federal 100 ceremonies, FCW and Government Executive will honor the current and former government officials and industry stakeholders who have made historic achievements and advances across government.

The Awards Program


The Federal 100 Awards are the original and most prestigious awards celebration in federal IT of the professionals who are paving the way of what can be accomplished in the future. Each year, we honor the leaders at all levels who have gone above and beyond to show how technology can be leveraged to make government run better. Experience this monumental moment in government like never before as we recognize the individuals who go beyond their assigned duties to leave a significant impact to the greater community.

The Government Hall of Fame is designed for those who have reached a high pinnacle of success during their careers in civil service. The Hall of Fame honors the best of the best: those who have demonstrated sustained achievement and unparalleled dedication to public service throughout their careers. The Hall of Fame Inductees have done much more than achieved a singular accomplishment—they have made historic progress in changing government for the better, and their influence will live on for generations. Each year a new class of inductees will be added to this group’s elite membership.
