DOE plans integrated management system

Over the next few years, the Energy Department will roll out an integrated business management system made of off-the-shelf Web applications.

The Integrated Management Navigation System, or I-Manage, is meant to satisfy the President's Management Agenda by consolidating and streamlining a number of departmental systems, said Ed Golden, deputy program manager for I-Manage.

The department will implement the system in stages over the next three fiscal years, Golden said. Officials have selected Oracle Federal Financials for the financial portion of the system but have not yet picked vendors for other applications, including the system's central data warehouse.

Energy will also tie its existing Web-enabled human resources application from PeopleSoft Inc. of Pleasanton, Calif., to I-Manage, Golden said.

Department officials want to realize economies of scale by getting enterprise licenses for the I-Manage components instead of piecemeal licenses for Energy's multiple agencies and field offices, said Jack Koller, a senior policy adviser in the Energy CIO's office.

Energy officials and Mark Forman, the Office of Management and Budget's associate director for IT and e-government, held a kickoff meeting for I-Manage last week.
