Service Delivery and Support Program

The Division of Information Technology (DoIT) is implementing IT Service Management, powered by ServiceNow. Our goal is to deliver consistent, reliable, and repeatable services. By doing so, we will increase our transparency and involvement across all levels of the Division of IT. This will allow the Division of IT to make more objective, data driven decisions to better meet the needs and expectations of our users.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is IT Service Management?

 IT Service Management (ITSM) is a customer focused approach to managing and delivering IT services. By aligning IT with business objectives, ITSM establishes: efficient processes based on best-practices, accessibility to information and knowledge sharing across the organization, and provides a foundation for improved service delivery.

How are we going to implement IT Service Management?

By using a “mature as we go” approach, we can progress incrementally through the changes by following a multi-phase plan. New program modules will be regularly released, allowing a steady and consistent transition into the new processes and features.
