Our vision

Our vision is to become a responsive, transparent digital city with easy to use and accessible services for every resident, visitor, business, and employee.

What we do

Convene leadership

We host regular public meetings as a vehicle of transparency into our operations. We encourage you to join our conversation as we make important decisions related to government technology. Attend our public meetings. 

Develop strategy

We develop the San Francisco's five-year strategic technology plan. We encourage you to read about our current and upcoming strategic initiatives and technology projects. Learn more about our citywide technology strategy.

Make smart investments

We review and approve all new technology projects above $100,000. The City plans to engage in 152 new technology projects worth $386 million over the next few years.

Create policy

Our policies intend to guide the adoption and use of technology. Governing policies are used to support strategic goals like cybersecurity and disaster preparedness. Read more about each policy.
