Department of Defense (DoD) programs often take advantage of DACS resources through the use of special Technical Area Tasks (TATs ) . While the DACS has performed many of these TATs over the years, few have had the DoD wide implications as the TAT now supporting the Science and Technology (S&T) Corporate Information Management (CIM) Program. The S&T CIM is part of a broad based program whose goal is to make DoD corporate information interoperable and comparable. This program will have sweeping effects on the way that information systems are specified, purchased, and applied within the DoD. The management of the CIM program has been organized according to traditional DoD centers of responsibility. The S&T CIM is a component of the Acquisition and Technology (A&T) CIM which also includes Atomic Energy, Environmental Security, Economic Security, Procurement, Logistics, Test and Evaluation.
