About Government Executive

Government Executive is government's business news daily and the premier digital destination for senior leaders in the federal government's departments and agencies. Our readers are the high-ranking civilian and military officials who are responsible for defending the nation and carrying out the laws that define the government's role in our economy and society.

Government Executive started as a print magazine in 1969 and has been a digital publication since 1996.

Our essential editorial mission is to cover the business of the federal government and its huge departments and agencies -- dozens of which dwarf the largest institutions in the private sector.

Specific editorial goals include:

-- Covering developments affecting the organization and management of the executive branch.

-- Helping federal executives and their agencies improve the quality of the services they provide by reporting on management innovations.

-- Explaining agencies' problems and failures in a way that offer lessons about pitfalls to avoid.

-- Helping to improve the image of the public service by teaching our non-government readers about the challenges federal officials confront.

Government Executive is a news publication owned by GovExec, the market-leading information platform that catalyzes the government mission, empowering the full government ecosystem to achieve its missions through data that informs, media that connects, and marketing services that activate.
