Telecommunications Services

OIT Telecommunications

Network Contract Management Services procures computer network-delivered information services, including but not limited to, voice, data, and video cloud services for state and local government. The unit assists DAS in superintending service providers’ contracted services under ORC 125.04. By combining all the service needs of Ohio’s public agencies, Network Contracts lowers or avoids rising costs of telecommunications and cloud computing delivery for governments, schools, libraries, and higher education institutions.


Order IT and Telecommunication Services

The Telecommunication Service Request system (TSR) has been replaced with the Ohio ServiceNow Customer Service Portal for convenience in ordering IT and Telecommunication services.  The portal is located at customer-service.ohio.gov and can be accessed by your State of Ohio User ID# and password.


Miscellaneous

The Department of Administrative Services (DAS) has migrated to the new State of Ohio Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephony solution. Please dial the full 11-digit phone number, 1-xxx-xxx-xxxx when contacting a DAS State of Ohio employee.  More information on the VoIP service can be located on the Next Generation Telephony Service website located at https://soh.sp.ohio.gov/sites/ngts/SitePages/NGTS_Users.aspx.
