Seventeen employees from the West Virginia Office of Technology will be traveling to Louisiana to assist that state’s government in its recovery efforts from Hurricane Isaac.
Information technology professions from West Virginia will join other state technical experts in supporting the Department of Children and Family Services in Louisiana, according to a news release from the West Virginia Department of Administration.
“I’m pleased that our IT staff will be helping our fellow state employees in Louisiana to provide vital services after such a terrible disaster affecting so many citizens in the south,” West Virginia’s Chief Technology Officer Gale Given said in the release. “We had more than 50 of our staff volunteer to help; however, to ensure the continuity of our operations here at home, we selected 17 employees to travel to Louisiana to assist.”
The state of Louisiana will reimburse the costs associated with this volunteer effort, the release said. West Virginia employees will provide technical assistance with personal computers, local area networks, card swipe systems and other technical requirements as needed.
The employees of the West Virginia Office of Technology are expected to leave this week and assist in Louisiana for about two weeks.
