Washington, D.C. -- The Wireless Telecommunications Bureau's announces that the Spectrum
Management, Resources and Technologies Division is changing its name to the Technologies,
Systems and Innovation Division (aptly known as the Tech Division, for short). The name has
been changed to more clearly reflect the Division's core mission and responsibilities.
The Tech Division is primarily responsible for developing and managing the Wireless Bureau's
information technology tools, systems and programs. This includes managing multiple
automated systems, developing innovative web-based tools and providing advanced mapping
and data analysis capabilities.
As part of its rebranding, the Division will place an even greater emphasis on increasing the
transparency of Bureau processes and providing access to underlying data through the use of the
latest web methodologies.
With this name change, the Division will be better positioned to succeed in its mission of
developing and managing innovative tools and systems, enabling data driven policy decisions
and equipping the public with timely, useful information about wireless services.
