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 and 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.
