Office of Information Technology

Rob O'Connor, Chief Information Officer

The Office of Information Technology’s (OIT) goal is to support, secure and optimize the reliable and responsive IT infrastructure, data, applications and devices that enable County agencies to fulfill their missions for the good of the people of Baltimore County. The agency is responsible for the development and management of all technology architecture, applications, systems, voice and data networks and radio communications systems and the security of County data and IT assets for all County agencies.

The focus of the agency has been on strengthening, consolidating and modernizing our infrastructure and workforce. With that solid foundation, we are focused on streamlining applications, data and business workflows to simplify and improve constituent and agency services. OIT remains focused on enabling our County workforce to serve the people faster and safer with fewer barriers and better information.
