IT Organization Changes Name
The Lab's Information Technologies and Services Division has changed its name to the Information Technology Division, or IT Division. The change was made to better reflect the group's focus on core competencies in information technology (IT), including providing the organizational base for DOE's ESnet. It also reflects the recent reorganization in which TEID's Creative Services (design and illustration, web development, photography, technical writing) were transferred to the Public Affairs Department.

performance of IT assets. The new UC contract also contains requirements
for compliance and performance. Read
