The vision of the Department is to lead the State in the creation and implementation of world-class information technology solutions to improve IT infrastructure and government services and keep Maryland current within IT industry trends.
To provide vital technology solutions that allow the Executive Branch, State Agencies and Coordinating Offices to provide Marylanders with services that enable them to live and work more safely, efficiently and productively.
We adhere to the Governor’s values of providing excellent customer service, increasing efficiency and reducing waste; always being mindful of the taxpayer dollar.
The Department of Information Technology was created by 2008 legislation in an effort to consolidate state agency information technology functions and policies into one department; elevating the department to one that reports directly to the Governor.
In addition to its larger statewide role, the Department of Information Technology manages Information Technology and Telecommunication services within the agency itself and provides support to state agencies, the Executive Office of the Governor, the Governor’s coordinating offices, and a variety of independent agencies within the Executive Branch. Striving to provide the highest level of customer service to its internal and external customers, the Department of Information Technology supports Maryland’s agencies and commissions through its leadership as a principal procurement unit. Most importantly, the department champions the state’s strategic direction for Information Technology and Telecommunications, establishing a long range, target technology architecture, encouraging cross agency collaboration and advocating best practices for operations and project management.
Technological resources at the agency’s disposal combined with a talented and knowledgeable team allow the Department of Information Technology to successfully identify and promulgate opportunities for State agencies to run more efficiently and less expensively, maximizing the State’s investment in technology and telecommunication assets.
The Department of Information Technology consists of seven divisions:
