According to ND Century Code (Chapter 54.59.01), Information Technology means the use of hardware, software, services, and supporting infrastructure to manage and deliver information using voice, data, and video. To further this definition for the sake of IT budgeting, ITD offers the following guidance.
Agencies may wish to include other costs at their discretion. For example, an agency may wish to include digital cameras in their IT budget even though they can be operated stand-alone. Data entry personnel may be included if they are considered part of the technology staff. Costs that are excluded above may be included if they are an integral part of a computer applications or would be difficult to break out because the costs are included with other information technology costs.
