Information is the lifeblood that flows through city government, and IT provides the pumping and circulation.
Information is sent from large IT file servers, out through the network, where it appears on a plethora of screens and reports. The Application Systems team is in charge of maintaining the programs that make this happen.
The members of the Application Systems team are computer programmers who speak both accounting and computerese. The team supports software for:
Financial Fund Accounting and Budgeting
Purchasing and Inventory
Document Scanning and Report Retention
Reservations at the Civic Center and the Porche House
. . . and the mailing of over eighty thousand utility bills every month
