Since 2002, we've dedicated the March issue of Government Technology to 25 people who cut through the public sector's infamous barriers to innovation -- tight budgets, organizational inertia, politics as usual, etc. -- to implement changes that reshaped government operations for the better. Congratulations to our 2009 Doers, Dreamers and Drivers.
