Pitt County joined Durham County and the City of Fayetteville as one of three winners within the state of a 2017 Government Innovation Grant Award at the North Carolina Local Government Information Systems Association conference.

The awards are presented annually, with submissions from all local governments across the State of North Carolina, with a goal of encouraging and rewarding technology-based innovation within the organization.

Pitt County Government has been recognized for the County’s Virtual Resource Manager solution. Developed by Pitt County Management Information Systems, the VRM solution standardized and elevated the process of requesting what has become an increasingly complex array of technology.

The system also offers a failsafe for revoking security and collecting resources assigned to staff upon termination. Using VRM provides more transparency between county departments and the MIS department, resulting in stronger collaboration and better working relationships between departments.

Mike Taylor, deputy county manager and chief information officer for Pitt County, was present to receive the award which was presented during the fall training symposium in Asheville.

In today’s workplace, most jobs require technology from the start, as employees routinely use tech resources in the delivery of services, according to a Pitt County news release. GIGa is a partnership between the UNC School of Government, Local Government Federal Credit Union, and North Carolina Local Government Information Systems Association.

The grant program seeks to elevate the importance of technology in the public sector and result in increased managerial and elected official interest in governmental technology investments. To learn more about NCLGISA or GIGa, visit their website at www.nclgisa.org
