The Department of Technology (DoT) provides Columbus's residents, visitors and businesses with sustained, reliable and efficient technology services, infrastructure and telecommunications.
Technology and innovation.
DoT focuses on the delivery and operations of vital IT infrastructure network and telecommunications services, continuous service improvement and solutions to enable customer success. Many DoT systems are visible to the public and accessible through the Internet such as:
• collection of web sites;
• internet GIS mapping;
• web payment system;
• Government Television Channel - CTV; and
• 311 Columbus Call Center.
Less visible but of equal importance are the people, servers, network and other sub-systems and processes that make the IT infrastructure network possible.
DoT continues to serve the needs of the community and the City by bringing industry and government together. DoT partners internally and with other departments across the organization to deliver and sustain state-of-the-art technology solutions and encourages collaboration between the public and private sectors to benefit the city's residents through technology and innovation.
