For over 30 years Economic Systems (EconSys) has been developing automated state of the art products for federal Human Resources (HR) offices. With the experience of our staff subject matter experts and input from our customers, we have developed an entire range of products that support a federal employee’s career lifecycle (from “hire-to-retire”) for every division within an HR office, on a single platform.
On Tuesday, October 13th, EconSys completed the migration of FedHR Navigator to AWS. The move to the AWS environment required a data migration of all databases, documents, and files from the previous environment.
There are several phases for getting FedRAMP certification. Corey Clements of SecureIT breaks down exactly what each phase entails — and how you can boost your chances of successfully getting certified.
FedRAMP — short for the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program — was created in 2011, to implement standardization for cloud services used by federal agencies. It's built on the back of FISMA, legislation passed in 2002, to ensure that federal agencies are meeting a regulated minimum when it comes to IT security.
In other words, FedRAMP exists to regulate which cloud services agencies can and can't use.
Workforce planning is one of the most important factors for a federal agency's success — it’s also one of the hardest to get right.
Firstly, your workforce is constantly changing. The profile of your team — ages, backgrounds, experience levels, and number of people — is different each year, so your plan needs to adapt accordingly.
Workforce planning is one of the most important and challenging aspects of optimizing your federal agency's productivity. When done correctly, it can ensure that you are always complying with current regulations, that your results line up with your goals, and that there’s a balance between employees joining and leaving your agency.
The onset of COVID-19 and its rapid spread has created challenges at a micro and macro level for the private sector and public sectors alike. Job growth has been stunted in many industries, but there are still needs federal agencies must meet. Right now, USAJobs has over 430 open positions - just to help with the COVID-19 emergency alone. So, with all of the new restrictions imposed by social distancing requirements and remote working environments, federal agencies are facing a completely new challenge.
At EconSys, we power federal & state governments with exceptional workforces. Our company supports government agencies to deliver on your core mission by helping you get the most out of your people.
