TCFloor5.19.15VILLA PARK- To streamline the state’s information technology functions the Illinois Department of Innovation and Technology (DoIT), a new state agency, was created today.

“To increase government efficiency we need to make major investments in our state’s technology systems,” State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park) said. “Today’s technologies provide an excellent opportunity to increase government efficiency, eliminate redundancies, provide cost-savings to taxpayers, and simplify residents’ interactions with government."

DoIT will spearhead Illinois’ efforts to modernization. All technology decisions will be centralized and put under the umbrella of this new agency.

Cullerton said Illinois has the talent and innovation to create a world-class government technology model. Hardik Bhatt, Illinois’s chief information officer, will lead the new state agency.

“We need to be more strategic with our technology investments to ensure we are getting the biggest return for our investments,” Cullerton said.  “This agency is a step in the right direction. I look forward to working with Hardik Bhatt and his agency to make sure government is working for the people of Illinois.”
