The Department of Innovation and Technology (DoIT) was introduced in 2008 to add innovation to the charter of the former Department of Business and Information Services.

As the central information technology organization for the City, DoIT provides a number of technology and telecommunications services to departments, the Mayor, Aldermen, other city agencies, residents, businesses and tourists.

The department also supports City innovation by:

  • Facilitating creative thought about existing business processes across departments
  • Providing departments with tools to deliver valuable new processes and services
  • Designing and implementing systems that deliver these processes and services
  • Applying technology where appropriate to automate processes and services
  • Developing strategic partnerships
