USDA begins training CCE staff

USDA begins training CCE staff

The Agriculture Department has awarded SI International a six-month, $1.4 million contract to provide training to employees during the transition to the department's common computing environment.

Through CCE, three major field agencies'the Farm Service Agency, Rural Development and the Natural Resources Conservation Service'will use a common IT platform supporting telecommunications, automation and administrative applications. Before the CCE effort, each agency managed its own IT strategy. Now the agencies will share a common plan.

Twelve SI International managers will train 550 USDA IT support staff members at 50 sites throughout the country over the next four months.

The staff members are involved in the deployment and day-to-day operations of Microsoft Windows 2000 Server, Active Directory and Exchange 2000 server.

CCE includes about 35,000 workstations, 8,000 printers, and 2,700 network servers across 3,500 USDA offices.
