State of Ohio IT Policies

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.
