EPA's remote access options are:
1) Full network access with government furnished equipment (GFE) through Virtual Private Network (VPN).
2) Limited network (VPN/proxy) for non-GFE access.
3) Access to a virtual EPA desktop through the Enterprise Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).
VDI is particularly relevant to EPA's external business partners who require access to internal EPA resources. Business partners lacking an EPA PIV card should immediately begin the Office of Administration and Resources Management (OARM) iBoard vetting process by working with their EPA Contracting Officer's Representative (COR) or other EPA point of contact. They must also identify specific tool and application/resource requirements, which will be supported via OEI's enterprise VDI solution. For additional information on iBoard, please visit the Bringing Personnel On Board intranet page.
