The official OSCAR kick off was on January 30, 2017. We have successfully completed the first few week of unit reviews of requirements. Thank you to all employees, managers, consultants and vendor who participated. Everyone provided helpful information to our vendor.

The new audio/visual equipment related to the project has been installed in 2nd floor conference room at the 401 office.

CapTech Ventures, Inc. and WorkComp Strategies, LLC will return to Topeka to continue unit reviews of requirements. These meetings will be held at the 401 office’s, 2nd floor conference room. The vendor and consultants will also set up their work space in the conference room. There may be some days 2nd floor conference room will be off limits to employees’ breaks and lunches.
