Information technology (IT) modernization can revolutionize efficiency, convenience and effectiveness for all users. That’s why government agencies and departments at the federal, state and local levels are eager to take advantage of all IT modernization has to offer. The move away from legacy systems and toward more innovative forms of technology continues to be a top priority for the Office of Personnel Management — and the rest of government.
