State Offers Sustainable Transportation Program
CHICAGO – December 12, 2012. State officials donated approximately 100 surplus computers to veterans’ organizations to provide veterans with greater access to online training and internet-based employment assistance. The Illinois Department of Central Management Services (CMS) Director Malcolm Weems and Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs (IDVA) Director Erica Borggren highlighted the benefits of the program to veterans at the Cathedral Shelter of Chicago.
CHICAGO – Governor Pat Quinn today launched an Internet grassroots campaign to increase public awareness about the need for pension reform in Illinois. Relaying a message from the next generation to today’s leaders, the "Thanks in Advance" public awareness campaign is designed to educate citizens about the "squeeze" caused by skyrocketing pension costs, and activate them to advocate for pension reform using tech tools like Facebook, Twitter and email.
The Department of Central Management Services (CMS) is pleased to announce its updated Client Relations program, designed to better serve the people of Illinois by providing more effective and efficient services to state agencies, employees, the business community and the legislature. CMS’ broad range of services includes human resources, group insurance, strategic sourcing of goods and services, and computer and telecommunication services.
CMS recently announced the launch of a sustainable transportation option for state employees in Chicago and Springfield, with car sharing services through Zipcar, Inc. Zipcar's hybrid and fuel-efficient vehicles will help support the State’s goal to reduce overall fuel consumption and promote environmentally-friendly forms of transportation for State business.
