San Francisco is the Innovation Capital of the World. The manner in which City government plans and invests in information and communication technologies must meet the rapid pace of technological change as well as embody the same innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of the City as a whole. Information technology is also a connective tissue between the City’s operations as an enterprise and its residents. It enables the City to improve existing government services, create entirely new services, and increase opportunities for engagement. In order for the City to meet the needs of San Franciscans and remain responsive to changes in technology, society, and its operating environment, COIT's vision is one of Innovation, Sustainability and Resilience.
