The Information Technology Department exists for the purpose of leading state agencies in discovering, assessing, and implementing information technologies. ITD is committed to better understanding state agency needs and in assisting in the implementation of the proper technology solution to accomplish these needs. It is organized to provide a broad range of technologies including mainframe and desktop computing, local and wide area networks, voice and data technologies, web, client server and mainframe software development, video conferencing, and emerging technologies. This is accomplished by investing in the development of highly skilled employees along with contracting outside vendors who maintain a level of expertise that is not available in-house or is limited due to the demands for a particular service.
ITD's Organizational Chart includes over 300 employees within six divisions, two enterprise initiatives, and a K-12 educational council.
