Major Technology Projects

Each year our department works to modernize our systems and supports other City departments on major technology projects. To plan and properly fund these efforts, we work with departments to develop an annual roadmap of projects. A cross-departmental committee reviews, rates, and helps us prioritize project requests to ensure we are working on the most important things first.

All projects are rated against the following categories based on the questions answered in the project form: 

  • Strategic Importance 
  • Cost 
  • Urgency 
  • Risk
