This State Department IT project started in 2009 and its nowhere near finished

From its embassy buildings to how it conducts diplomacy, the State Department has been on a modernization drive. That also includes its information technology. The Bureau of Consular Affairs has been working to consolidate 90 systems into one common system. The effort is known as Consular-One. It’s not going all that great. For the latest, Federal Drive host Tom Temin spoke with two people from the State Department office of inspector general, who looked into Consular-One: Vandana Patel, a senior information management inspector and Lisa Piascik, consular inspector.
