The FabrIc for Frontier Experiments (FIFE) project within the Fermilab Scientific Computing Division is charged with integrating offline computing components into a common computing stack for the non-LHC Fermilab experiments, supporting experiment offline computing, and consulting on new, novel workflows. We will discuss the general FIFE onboarding strategy, the upgrades and enhancements in the FIFE toolset, and plans for the coming year. These enhancements include: expansion of opportunistic computing resources (including GPU and high-performance computing resources) available to experiments; assistance with commissioning computing resources at European sites for individual experiments; StashCache repositories for experiments; enhanced job monitoring tools; and a custom workflow management service. Additionally we have completed the first phase of a Federated Identity Management system to make it easier for FIFE users to access Fermilab computing resources.
