One of the biggest challenges facing Federal government agencies is recruiting and retaining skilled IT workers. Providing employees with the right kind of technical training can help solve both problems. The skills challenge was a major focus of the recent MerITocracy summit, where Sen. Jacky Rosen, D-Nev., pointed to the growing gap between workforce skills and technological needs and Rep.
