The Department’s Efforts to Implement Common Information Technology Services at Headquarters

The Department of Energy invested more than $980 million on consolidated infrastructure, office automation, and telecommunications in Fiscal Year (FY) 2006. In an effort to increase efficiency and purchasing power and reduce overall expenditures, the Department launched an initiative in FY 2003 to consolidate all aspects of common information technology (IT) systems including: computer desktop support, application hosting, and equipment distribution services that had previously been managed separately by various Headquarters organizations. The initiative, originally known as the Extended Common Integrated Technology Environment, is now known as the Department of Energy's Common Operating Environment (DOE-COE).
