Consolidating Multiple e-Mail Systems Into One Integrated Solution
With 12 Operating Divisions (OPDIVs) comprising more than 100,000 employees and contractors dispersed across the United States, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has long faced the technical challenge of incompatible e-mail systems. The department wanted to consolidate e-mail systems for over 65,000 HHS Federal and contract staff geographically disbursed across Washington DC, Baltimore MD, Atlanta GA, and 12 major regional sites throughout the United States. HHS partnered with Unisys to build a unified electronic mail system for the Office of the Secretary and 10 of its 12 Operating Divisions. The Department's disparate e-mail systems have been consolidated into a single, integrated system that streamlines communications while meeting the security requirements of its various Operating Divisions.
