Environmental Information Technology Management

The Environmental Information Technology Management (EITM) program oversees and manages DoD information technology applications that contribute to improved environmental sustainability and stewardship. These applications are utilized by the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps, by other Federal and state governmental organizations, by NGOs and by the private sector. EITM's mission is to achieve a "requirements driven" Corporate Reporting System, optimizing corporate assets to facilitate strategic decisions at all levels of DoD, while cost effectively delivering and sustaining consistent shared Information Technology Management tools.
