Agriculture Department makes progress on IT consolidation

"The Agriculture Department's information technology executives are embracing shared services initiatives and outsourcing in an attempt to save money and eliminate redundancies across the agency of 100,000-plus employees.

By participating in 22 of the 26 presidential e-government initiatives and eight of nine Office of Management and Budget 'lines of business,' the department is making significant contributions to shared services initiatives, the IT executives said. The lines of business projects are an OMB-led effort to consolidate and centralize federal IT systems, including those for financial management and human resources. "
