The report is divided into three major sections: survey goals and process, results, and a conclusion. Six results are discussed in detail: (1) reported IT positions and vacancies; (2) education requirements for core IT positions; (3) retention and hiring of core IT positions; (4) strategies for meeting IT personnel needs; (5) training challenges; and (6) training providers. Seven tables show results. Appendices include a background on IT workforce issues; core occupational clusters; references cited; survey methodology; regions of the United States; the survey instrument; research team members; and IT convocation task force summaries.
