Ray Bauer, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s innovation lead is one of 18 finalists out of a field of more than 100 nominations for the Nextgov 2015 Bold Awards.

The awards highlight and honor federal employees who’ve implemented innovative programs or made transformative contributions to government through the power of technology. The nomination process called for bold, innovative federal employees who are disrupting the status quo – risk takers who defied the bureaucracy and used technology to improve federal initiatives, processes and policies.
