About IT

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.

 

OA-Information Technology (OIT) oversees investments in and performance of all IT systems across the commonwealth. OIT establishes and implements policies, standards, and guidelines regarding planning, management, acquisition, and security of IT assets in all commonwealth agencies under the Governor’s jurisdiction.  OIT is responsible for the issuance and management of IT procurement, including hardware, software, services and telecommunications. The office also provides direct oversight for large, enterprise-wide initiatives, such as IT consolidation, commonwealth shared services, and cyber security, as well as enterprise IT technology support.


In addition, OA-Information Technology manages the Pennsylvania Justice Network (JNET).
