Inverness Enhances Collaboration for the Defense Task Force on Sexual Harassment and Violence at the Military Academies

October 1, 2004

The Secretary of Defense established the Defense Task Force on Sexual Harassment and Violence at the Military Academies on September 22, 2004. The 12-member task force, composed of senior military and civilian experts from inside and outside the Department of Defense, is charged to assess and make recommendations concerning how the Departments of the Army and Navy may more effectively address matters relating to sexual harassment and violence at the U.S. Military Academy and the U.S. Naval Academy. The task force follows the Fowler Commission that considered similar issues at the Air Force Academy last year. They are to report back to the Secretary within one year.

Geographic separation and the sheer volume of information to be reviewed and coordinated presented unique challenges for the Task Force. Inverness Technologies is providing a solution – the Collaborative Office Environment (COE) – that will enable the Task Force to work efficiently and effectively.

Inverness designed the COE to enable Task Force members to quickly and easily store, organize, and search for critical information in the extensive document reference library. It also provides work spaces where the Task Force committee member can collaborate on briefings and reports, discuss issues at hand, vote on recommendations, and coordinate schedules via team calendars. The COE will reduce travel and communication costs and maximize the productivity of this critical Task Force.

Inverness, an innovative IT consulting firm, is providing this support as part of a follow-on effort sponsored by the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness. In addition to designing the COE, Inverness will provide user training, help-desk support and system administration support to the Task Force.
