The division is responsible for assessing information technology tools and strategies to meet the ever-changing business needs of the department. In addition, the division is responsible for coordinating the department's GIS initiatives, maintaining the department's Web site, and overseeing Freedom of Information Act responses. In addition, the division also has responsibility for coordinating rulemaking activities, updating department policies, tracking audits, assuring corrective action plans are implemented, and coordinating appointments and other tasks for the department's various commissions.
