When Vaughn Noga joined EPA, he set five “wildly important goals” (WIGs), as he called them, that only became more important during the COVID-19 pandemic — things like going paperless and creating a cyber-aware culture. EPA continues that work while consolidating activities into two digitization centers expected to launch in 2022. IT staff also received more praise within EPA for its efforts to support the workforce through infrastructure and business process modernization. “Folks supporting mission support activities generally don’t get the recognition they deserve for keeping the trains running,” Noga said. “We were able to rapidly evolve how we on-boarded and provisioned employees, how we trained and supported end-users, how we continued to provide an accessible and secure and IT infrastructure, and how we were able to support the virtual collaboration needs across the entire workforce.”
