Knowledge Portal

We work with agencies to help them understand the importance of sharing knowledge of agency missions, goals, and values across all organizational lines. We help agencies realize the full potential of their employees by helping them develop processes to share knowledge throughout organizations by establishing and managing a central content database for secure access to Government off the Shelf (GOTS) content use and application. Connect to the Knowledge Portal.
