 Public Service

 “They call what we do public service for a reason: because it’s not
 politics. It’s not parties. It’s not power that counts at the end of the
 day. Those interests can vanish in a moment. It is the service that
 endures. It is service that is important. It is the service that is our
 mark. It is our measure. It is our record of performance.”

                              Past Decade of Progress — Future Decade of Promise
                              In 2007, the Office for Technology (OFT) celebrated its 10th year as a state
                              agency. The original legislation creating OFT was augmented by the creation of the
                              Office of the CIO (OCIO) in 2002. The following table highlights the major
                              accomplishments of the past decade. Also, the planned goals through 2010 and the
                              next 10 years are presented in Table 1.
                              CIO/OFT intends to continue advancing the original
                              mission of OFT and OCIO by seeking collaborative
                              partnerships to advance enterprise IT solutions.           10th
