The Michigan Department of Information Technology (DIT) was created by Executive Order 2001-3 in the hope of improving technology services by consolidating management of “state information and technology resources, and assuring the reliability, security, and confidentiality of state data and computer facilities.”[2] 

The services that are provided by the department include, but are not limited to, software development, state employee desktop computer support management, electronic security, and basic telecommunications infrastructure support for all other state departments.  Each department receives funding for information technology services and projects and this money is paid to the DIT for services rendered.

This report does not include a detailed analysis of these operations, and therefore no program changes are recommended at this time.
