The Division of Information Technology (DoIT) was created by Executive Order on April 29, 2004 (press release) to consolidate and better manage our state's information technology resources. The Division, headed by the Chief Information Officer, is responsible for oversight, coordination and development of all IT staff and resources within the Executive Branch of government. Specifically, the Division will standardize the state's ongoing investments in software, networks and services.

The State CIO/CDO

Bijay Kumar

Bijay Kumar, the State Chief Information Officer (CIO) and Chief Digital Officer (CDO) joined the State in July 2017. Continued focus on people, process and technology have empowered the Division to better address the technology challenges facing the State.

This leadership energy and renewed focus continues to manifest itself in improvements to DoIT’s organizational structure, and strategic assessments of State applications and technologies.

The CIO/CDO continues to conduct ETSS all-hands meetings, quarterly leadership offsites and structured weekly meetings. This enables the organization to align around a shared structure and vision, improve team morale and continue the progress in advancing people, process and technology at the State.
