PIA - DOT IT Consolidation

At the June 26, 2003 meeting of the Department's Investment Review Board (IRB) a decision was made to begin the process of consolidating the Department's IT infrastructure in advance of the move to the new headquarters facility. A consolidated IT infrastructure has the benefit of delivering to the end users improved, more consistent and more highly secured IT services at a total cost of ownership (TCO) that is equal-to or less than the current cost of provisioning such services. This double benefit of improved services at a reduced cost is only possible with a commitment to a standardized, well structured IT infrastructure delivered by a world-class service organization. Thus, the IT Consolidation project if properly executed will contribute to implementing the President's Management Agenda vision of eliminating redundant services while improving overall IT service and security levels. In addition, because there is an increasingly critical need for real time communications among the Operating Administrations and the Department, the need for a single consolidated e-mail and directory capability across the Department (excluding the FAA) is strongly supported. Thus, this program will support the strategic goals of improved service to citizens, increased security of operations, at a reduced cost, while also providing improved, internal communications across the agencies and within the entire Department. The Office of the Chief Information Officer has the responsibility to effect this consolidation and will do so by creating a DOT Common Operating Environment (COE). The DOT Information Technology Services (DOT-ITS), a division of the Chief Information Officer's Office, will be responsible for the establishment and maintenance of the COE. That office will administer desktop and network operations for the Department.

Since privacy management is an integral and important part of the COE, the department has retained the services of privacy experts to help assess its privacy management program by utilizing proven technology, sound policies and procedures, and proven methodologies.
