The Department of Information Technology provides a full range of Information Technology services to the entire Contra Costa organization. Our team manages the central corporate computing complex, a countywide Wide Area Network (WAN), and numerous Local Area Networks (LANs). We provide business and technical consulting services to departments and managers throughout the organization.


The County has a reputation for being a leader in the field of technology. Our breakthrough work within client technology has been shared throughout the world by both the private and public sectors.

Our leadership in the Year 2000 solutions assisted many private and public sector organizations in setting up their own successful Y2K programs.

Contra Costa County has been viewed as a leader in the areas of information technology security and electronic commerce planning on an enterprise-wide basis. Our highly successful "Cisco Kids" high school internship program was covered worldwide by CNN in 1998.
