iMMAP provides information management services as both individual activities and on-going collaborations, through iMMAP-implemented projects and through the secondment of information management staff.
iMMAP provides project-based services through cooperative agreements, direct grant support, and various contract vehicles in agency-specific, national, regional, and global contexts.
