IT Workforce


The IT Workforce Committee is government's advocate for strategies to help develop and maintain an effective IT workforce. Its broad agenda encompasses the full employment life cycle: workforce planning, recruitment and retention and career development. As the Federal government continues to streamline IT resources, resulting in more enterprise-wide programs, it must also ensure that the IT workforce is well versed in such areas as IT project management and trained to execute projects with minimum risk. The Committee members, representing nearly every federal Department and agency, work in partnership with the HR community to develop, implement and communicate strategies to recruit, retain and manage a fully trained and qualified IT workforce, to meet current and future mission requirements.
The IT Workforce Committee is committed to its strategic goal: The Federal Government has a cadre of highly capable IT professionals with mission critical competencies to meet agency goals.
