(Sandia National Laboratories runs as a corporate structure managed by Lockheed Martin Corp. through a contract with the USA Department of Energy. The Public Relations and Creative Communications department functions as a service bureau for the many laboratories located at the California site. The IT structure, of necessity, must mesh with and share resources maintained at the Albuquerque Site, requiring careful diplomatic interface with the IT departments for each. Many of the web based projects involved international research teams as well as administration, public relations and marketing for the Laboratories.)

Set standards for public and intranet web sites, web architecture, navigation and production processes. Primary liaison to Corporate IT staff, Department and Project Administrators and high level administrative staff. Laboratory Primary Web Sites and accompanying web applications were 3 year, 3 phase projects.

Lasting Result: Web production program now established and continuing within budgetary means. Numerous web based applications in place that require no client training now streamline business and research processes.
