Office of Information Technology

Rob O'Connor, Chief Information Officer

Baltimore County‘s overall mission is to deliver the highest standard of service to residents, businesses, and visitors to ensure effective, efficient, and ethical stewardship of county resources. The Office of Information Technology (OIT) must strive to make improvements in operational efficiencies, accountability, and overall county employee productivity by implementing IT solutions that are cost effective, innovative, industry-led, and delivering quality IT support and service.

OIT’s vision is to create a technology-led employee and community base that promotes accountability and efficiency through transparency. Providing easy, secured, and reliable access to accurate information and quality services creates a trust between government, its employees, and the people who work, live and play in Baltimore County.
