SACRAMENTO – In accordance with the Governor’s Reorganization Plan 2, the California Technology Agency officially became the new California Department of Technology today. One of eight departments within the new Government Operations Agency, the Department of Technology’s physical office locations and contact information remain unchanged.
Under the Governor’s Reorganization Plan, the Department of Technology’s authority, jurisdiction and mission remain exactly the same – to provide Californians with the best, most reliable and secure services and information. The streamlined alignment within the Government Operations Agency will allow for more efficient collaboration and enhance the success of California’s information technology (IT) projects.
Director Carlos Ramos continues as California’s Chief Information Officer (CIO) and as a member of the Governor’s Cabinet. He will continue to lead the offices and divisions within the California Department of Technology, including:
- Office of Technology Services (OTech) www.otech.ca.gov
- IT Project Oversight and Consulting Division www.cio.ca.gov/ppmo
