The Information Systems program provides support services both internally to the FHTET organization and externally to the Forest Health Protection (FHP) Washington Office (WO) and FHP field units. Internally, the program provides the technical and administrative services to plan, acquire, operate, and maintain the information technology systems required by the other FHTET program areas. For the FHP-WO and field units, the program provides Web-site development expertise. The program also enterprises its Web development skills to other Forest Service units for specific projects on a cost-reimbursable basis.
The primary customers of the Information Systems program services are the FHTET program managers, the FHP-WO, and FHP field units. Other Forest Service staffs are at times customers on specific projects. These are typically at the Washington Office level.
