The Department creates a work plan each fiscal year that identifies projects and outlines key results for each objective. The work plan is publicly available on our website.

These areas of focus are used to inform an annual departmental work plan and a Citywide technology improvement program which details the schedule and funding of specific projects.

The creation of the Department has been done at no additional cost to the City. Existing funds for the Information Technology Division are being used to fund operations.

While traditional IT is focused on support, security, and development, Digital encompasses a broader world of user experience, analytics, strategy and performance. Digital requires a new myriad of skills, broader roles, and strategic leadership. This demand led to the creation of this department.

This includes new ways of engaging with the community; designing services with and for people, not bureaucracy;...

Projects here are selected and informed based on our...
