About Information Services

The Information Services Department provides central IT support for all County departments.  This includes business application support, implementation and upgrades to all existing applications such as tax, financial/human resources, public safety, and judicial systems. The County business systems and technology infrastructure consists of many large enterprise class technologies which include a variety of specialized systems.  Each County agency also has business applications that are specific to its unique business that are supported by the Information Services Department.  Priority has been placed on expanding the use of technology enterprise-wide by allocating $30-million in Special Purpose Local Option Sales Taxes (SPLOST) funding. These funds will be used for technology modernization and infrastructure upgrades including e-Government initiatives which will provide even more digital access to our citizens and businesses.

The Information Services Department is organized into six divisions—Administration, Client Services Division I, Client Services Division II/GIS, Technical Operations, Web Portal and Records Management/Mail Services.

Mission

Partner with County agencies, departments, and elected officials to deliver services and information to citizens and the business community through responsive, accessible, innovative, and cost-effective IT solutions. Provide a secure, reliable, agile IT infrastructure to support these solutions and the business operations of county government.

Vision

Enable our partner agencies within Cobb County Government to securely leverage technology to make it easier for citizens to interact with their government – to allow individuals and businesses to access the information and services they need,  when they need it, using the same methods (Internet, mobility, social media) they  use to interact with the world around them.
