Mission

The Office of Information Technology Services (ITS) provides centralized technology services to customer agencies, sets the State’s technology standards, and coordinates statewide technology-related initiatives and governance of those initiatives to improve the efficiency of New York State government. The mission of ITS is to be a world-class technology service delivery organization leading the State’s efforts to enhance service delivery and consolidate operational functions. ITS will also establish a statewide IT Governance Model to centralize decision making with an enterprise approach. Further, ITS is charged with leading the State’s transformation efforts by consolidating fragmented infrastructure and networks, expanding enterprise solutions such as email, and redesigning the delivery of services with transparent service level agreements and cost models. This will enable agencies to focus on their core mission and serve New York’s citizens through innovation solutions.

Budget Highlights

The Executive Budget recommends $915 million all funds appropriations, an increase of $163 million from Fiscal Year 2013-14 funding levels. This increase in appropriations is supported by the transfer of funds from other State agencies to back both personal service and non-personal service obligations assumed by the Agency.

The Executive Budget recommends a workforce of 3,819 FTEs for the Agency, an increase of 41 FTEs from the previous fiscal year. This reflects the continued transfer of IT professionals substantially engaged in carrying out any technology function.

Legislation accompanying the Executive Budget provides for the reassignment of technology staff and services from the Joint Commission on Public Ethics, the Governor’s Office of Employee Relations, and the Labor Management Committees. This legislation will also facilitate the provision of NYS technology services to municipal and public benefit corporations, political subdivisions, public authorities and any unit of SUNY or CUNY.
