US Interior Department IT Infrastructure Vision

Tim Quinn, Chief Infrastructure Officer, US Department of Interior, sees IP convergence as a key part of DoI’s future IT infrastructure. During the Federal News Radio Executive Forum, he also cited the need to deliver voice, video and 2-way radio over internet protocols as important to the provisioning of collaborative services. According to Mr. Quinn, his job is to “reduce the burden of infrastructure” in order to allow more focus on information. He also believes the department should be a leader in green IT.

  • Progress Report on the Networx Contract & Transition in the Federal Government
  • Progress & Best Practices on Navy NMCI & DHS ONE-NET
  • Critical Issues on Optimizing Government’s Infrastructure
  • Lessons Learned
  • A Vision for The Future
