The continued downward pressure on government budgets and staff reductions, even as citizens demand more and more digital services, may now be relieved thanks to a new tool. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is being aggressively adopted by federal agencies who are reducing backlogs, increasing capacity, and redeploying workforces to higher-value work – all at a fraction of the cost and efforts of traditional IT initiatives. Federal agencies including the Army, Navy, IRS, NASA, National Science Foundation, and more are deploying RPA in support of a wide range of operations and tasks including HR, finance, supply chain, hospital record management. These operations often involve tedious, repetitive processes that prevents government workers from doing anything but near-robotic work each day.
