CIO's Office


From processing driver’s licenses, conducting elections, testing water samples and providing insurance to low-income children to making sure that up-to-the-minute criminal histories are available to state troopers in their cars, OA-Information Technology’s work is a strong — but often invisible — thread through the government services delivered to Pennsylvania’s citizens.

Under Executive Order 2011-5, OA-Information Technology has statewide oversight of:

  • IT governance and strategic planning 
  • IT program management and business process integration 
  • IT project management and delivery 
  • IT procurement and contract management 
  • IT human resource management 
  • IT enterprise standards 
  • IT consolidation and services 
  • Telecommunications governance
