What does the Workstation Category Team (WTC) do?
The Workstation Category Team (WCT), an interagency task force, was charged with analyzing and optimizing current laptop and desktop computer acquisition practices. Based on the WCT’s review, OMB identified three critical steps to improve acquisition practices: (1) establish standard specifications that generally will suffice to meet federal agency computing needs; (2) consolidate federal contracts for laptops and desktop computers under three contracting vehicles; and (3) develop smart management practices for controlling cost and performance.
