Annual information technology report released

Monday, July 11, 2016 by Kayleigh Hughes

The city has released its annual roundup of achievements accomplished by the municipal Information Technology organization and the IT professionals working with the city. Achievements in 2015 include a new online plan review for general building permits and a laptop and tablet circulation kiosk at libraries, both of which contributed to Austin being named one of the “Top 10 Digital Cities in the Country” by the Center for Digital Governance. Of Austin’s IT progress, City Manager Marc Ott said, “Using open government and open data as a launching point, we have become more innovative, more transparent and more seamless in working with the Austin community to create a more efficient and effective government.” You can find the report on the city’s Information Technology page and provide feedback at
