In Conjunction with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, QuickSeries® Is Proud to Have Developed the New USDA Ethics App for Executive Branch Employees

The QS Team

On August 23, 2017, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue unveiled the new mobile application designed for Executive Branch employees that provides answers to questions about government ethics issues. The ground-breaking application was designed as a one-stop shop for U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) employees to ensure compliance with Federal ethics rules; however, the app is available to anyone with Android or Apple devices.

“We at QuickSeries® are proud to have played an integral part in producing this revolutionary, resourceful and content-rich app for the USDA,” says Christopher Black, VP of Sales at QuickSeries®.

This app is the first of its kind within the Federal Government, and plays a major part in supporting President Trump’s ethics pledge and the USDA’s mission and motto: “‘Do right and feed everyone’ so that we enhance the American public’s confidence in the integrity and important work of the Department of Agriculture.”

The Customized App was developed by our QuickSeries® Team of software developers and designers in conjunction with USDA’s clear directives, and is enriched with relevant ethics-related content and videos while being 508-compliant, thus meeting the agency’s desire to maintain inclusiveness for all employees. This user-friendly app puts ethics rules and Hatch Act limitations at the user’s fingertips – no matter where he or she is located. Plus, the app is loaded with a resource section through which employees can readily contact a USDA ethics advisor with a single tap.
