OIT develops and promulgates statewide information technology (IT) policies established by the state chief information officer. These policies help to protect public assets and information in a consistent manner across state agencies.
State IT policies affect a wide variety of agencies, so OIT strives to ensure that each policy is based on comprehensive research and evaluation. Prior to adoption, each policy undergoes a rigorous research and development process that typically involves the contributions of state agencies, subject matter experts, expert advisory services and legal counsel.
