About the Office


The Office of Information Technology (OIT) plans, manages, and operates the information technology (IT) resources for the Department of Financial Services (DFS), Office of Financial Regulation (OFR), and Office of Insurance Regulation (OIR). OIT focuses on understanding the business of its customers, improving those business processes, and delivering innovation.

Our Mission


To develop and maintain a talented workforce that provides efficient and effective IT services; while eliminating duplication and modernizing business applications in an integrated environment that fosters open communication and collaboration with our customers; and make sound investments in their technology assets.

Our Guiding Principles


  • Our ability to implement and maintain modern technology directly affects the Department's ability to serve the citizens of Florida.
  • Developing and maintaining competent staff decreases the cost to serve our customers and results in the provisioning of efficient and effective IT services.
  • We must ensure effective use of OIT customers' investments in technology assets and services that enable achievement of business goals and objectives.

Initiatives


  • Cost Allocation
  • Cost allocation is the process of attributing expenditures to the various entities that OIT serves. This process allows OIT to give a more accurate and transparent representation of the cost of its services.


  • Master Data Management (MDM)
  • A comprehensive method of enabling an enterprise to link all of its critical data to a common point of reference. In addition, MDM can facilitate computing in multiple system architectures, platforms and applications.


  • Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  • AI enables information systems to interact and adapt with their environment and carry out intuitive actions, similar to natural cognition. IT tools learn from events and act accordingly as time goes on.
