  • Continually develop and deploy Shared Technology Services solutions based on business needs and values.
  • Provide improved customer relationships and operational efficiencies, optimized delivery of services, and integrated operations.

Program Highlights

Collaborative – This shared technology service environment drives collaboration between DIR, Service Component Providers, and DIR customers while the program governance, systems, and tools provide a high level of visibility and control over service delivery. Shared Technology Services are provided through a shared, collaborative governance model which provides a set of defined interactions, expectations, decisions, roles, and processes that guide the governance of the program, facilitate effective resolution of issues, and enables strategic decision making.  Services are administered through established processes based on an Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) methodology, ensuring the use of standardized, repeatable processes and best practices.
