FedCenter Web Site Is One-Stop Federal Government Resource

Article excerpt

The InterFed Group, Inc. has announced a new Web site called FedCenter (http://www.fedcenter.com), the first and only independent, "one-stop" Internet information technology resource on the World Wide Web for the federal government. FedCenter provides a large volume of information about technology solutions in a single, easy-to-use, and easy-to-access Web site. FedCenter simplifies access and retrieval of technology-related data by bringing together key information from dissimilar Web sites of leading technology vendors and organizations that service the federal government. It provides the information in a consistent structure using formats, styles, content, terminology, and graphics with which government users are familiar and comfortable. FedCenter's independence as an information provider underscores its commitment to provide unbiased value-added information to the government IT community.

FedCenter currently has 65 clients comprised of leading technology vendors and suppliers, as well as event listings and registration services for more than 7,500 training courses, seminars, and events being conducted across the country. Multiple resource centers within FedCenter cover hot topic categories of interest to government personnel including a Windows 95 Resource Center and a resource center focused on major IDIQ contracts and GSA schedules. The Web site's event and training search engines provide better search and retrieval capabilities than do other generic search engines on the Web.
