During the 1990's, the computer training activities of the U.S. Government's similar centers at the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), General Services Administration (GSA), and Department of Education (DOE) were consolidated with the USDA Graduate School, which had the best facility, staff, and curriculum. 

In 2011, the Graduate School became a separate, non-profit educational institution, and no longer part of the US Department of Agriculture.
