Project Highlights

OEA continues to assist communities, both large and small, with adapting to Defense program changes. Communities benefit from decades of OEA knowledge and community best practices, allowing them to leverage state and federal resources to proactively and positively change their individual community.

Each project highlight story below showcases a challenge the community is facing and how this community, with OEA support, is working to solve it.

My Town Hall

The All Partners Access NetworkThe My Town Hall feature is now being supported through the All Partners Access Network (APAN) site. APAN is a non-classified, web-enabled platform providing a capability to share/collaborate on a variety of mutual objectives among a diverse set of government, non-government, interagency and state partners using social networking technology. APAN uses a variety of social media tools like blogs, wikis, groups, forums, profiles, web conferencing, and file sharing to create an online community outside the military firewall (hosted on a .org instead of a .mil) where the Department of Defense can collaborate freely and securely with non-traditional partners like non-governmental organizations, academia, private organizations, and international organizations. Also, APAN uses structured tools to allow for file storage, mapping, and photo sharing. APAN is currently the official platform for the Defense Information Systems Agency’s Unclassified Information Sharing System.
