Kforce Inc. has launched the National Infrastructure Operations Center (NIOC), a state-of-the-art project management office that leverages the professional staffing firm’s geographic footprint and reputation for excellence in IT recruiting to provide cost-effective best-of-breed solutions for large-scale IT projects.

NIOC provides full-scale IT resources including Project Management Institute (PMI)-certified project managers, dedicated resource management, full administrative support, documentation services, recruiting and maintenance, as well as pre- and post-project support. Senior project managers design, direct, monitor and document each phase of a client’s project while local Kforce offices provide onsite resources.

The NIOC model, which can save clients up to 30 percent of their project budget by limiting the expensive travel costs typically associated with large projects, has earned Kforce strategic partnerships with some of the nation’s premier providers of “best practice” IT services. Through NIOC, Kforce provides management and support for such IT projects as:

  • E-mail upgrades, migrations and maintenance
  • Inventory and asset management services
  • Help desk and desktop support
  • LAN/WAN architecture, installation and support
  • Physical site or data center moves
  • Point of sale (POS) implementation
  • Software/hardware upgrades, rollouts and migrations
  • Windows/operating system design and deployment

NIOC clients also benefit from Kforce’s ability to tap into its national network of skilled consultants to customize project teams that fit precisely with the unique needs of each client. That, in turn, frees clients to focus on their core competencies rather than the IT project at hand.
