AIF’s Information Technology Council (ITC) is a group of leading information technology and telecommunications companies representing all aspects of the technology industry. The Council includes service and support providers, IT systems integrators, hardware and software companies, consultants and re-sellers ranging from Fortune 500 companies to medium-sized and small businesses. The Council was created in early 2006 with the clear mission to convey the value of IT to Florida’s government as the state was falling behind in re-engineering its business processes used in delivering citizen services.
The Council will focus on insurance measures that will:
Support of modernization and reform of state contracts for information technology and services focused on open competition, and the availability of the best products and services to the state agencies that need them.
Support for an “investment view” toward IT spending in the State of Florida. Strategic and well-planned investments in IT should be viewed upon as essential investments in the future of our state. The Florida Legislature must be willing to make prudent and long-term investments in IT modernization, in order to improve service to our citizens, the efficiency of our government, and our competitive position with other leading states for jobs and industry growth.
