IT Managed Services
Effective October 2016, the State's ITQ technology vendor list has been expanded, providing agencies even more options to complete technology initiatives. The OCIO has pre-qualified a total of 33 vendors across the disciplines of application development, cloud computing, infrastructure, and IT business services using the ITQ process. Each vendor may be pre-qualified in one or many service areas. The new application development discipline includes web development and, as a result, the previous web development ITQ is no longer in effect.
