What We Faced

Challenge

A government agency desired to establish a new strategy within their IT support organization to centralize support resources, standardize processes, and streamline existing support contracts.​

They wanted to consolidate their IT support at the top level by rolling support up from field and regional office levels, as well as 25+ agencies within the organization. This also required reducing the number of overall support contracts by addressing many individual contracts.

Services Implemented

BMC Remedy ITSM for call center ticket tracking and asset management.
Help Desk Tiers 1-3 covering desktop support, research and development systems, and server administration / active directory support.
What We Did

Solution

The scope of the government contract included numerous offices all across the country that would require significant change management activities. ​

This required transitioning IT support from the individual agencies at each location and implementing a consolidated IT end user support organization. MRE supported the transformation through:​

  • Identifying existing personnel available to hire in new organization​
    Developing a comprehensive staffing model​
  • Interviewing and hiring available qualified personnel​
  • Recruiting and hiring additional personnel to fill gaps
