The Federal Government has purchased Informative essays from a Canadian company, which has created an online tool that allows government departments and agencies to submit a new piece of government content, the Information Technology Review Agency (ITRA).
The agency said in a release that it had begun working with Informative’s service provider to deliver the new tool to government departments.
The agency had previously purchased Informatic’s service from the same vendor that was behind the new site for government agencies, the Government of Canada, in late 2016.
The Federal Government previously said it planned to acquire the service for $200 million over four years, but the purchase is being delayed because of the ITRA acquisition.
The new tool, which is called Informative Online Essay Submission and is also called FEA, will enable agencies to provide their employees with a central, searchable source of information, information technology reviews agency (ITRRA) said in the release.
It will enable the Government to use the platform to better respond to ITRRA queries and provide information about its services.
The service will be delivered via the government’s ITRTA website and will be available to federal employees.
The service is being developed in partnership with a number of Canada’s leading IT and IT services providers, including IBM, Siemens and Intel.
Government departments, the ITRAA said, can use the service to provide a comprehensive, timely and accessible response to their ITRAs and other inquiries.
The Government of Quebec is the largest ITRA customer.
In addition to the government, the service provider also provides assistance to the public sector and businesses.
