The Department of Information Technology provides technology services to state agencies and other government customers across North Carolina. Our services include hosting, network, telecommunications, desktop computing, project management services, and unified communications such as email and calendaring. Service offerings are described in our Service Catalog.
The department operates under the leadership of the State Chief Information Officer (SCIO), as appointed by the Governor. State CIO Chris Estes was appointed in January 2013 and serves on the cabinet of Governor Pat McCrory. The State CIO provides direct management over IT operations and has statewide IT responsibilities, including technical architecture, procurement, project management, and security.
The General Assembly directed the State Chief Information Officer to identify restructuring options for the most effective use of IT resources. Our recommended structure will support an enterprise approach to addressing the State’s technology needs.
