Florida reorganized its IT shop, again
While most states’ IT organizations continue to evolve, perhaps with occasional setbacks, Florida appears stuck in a pattern of rebooting its technology governance every few years. This year brought yet another IT reorganization — Florida’s fourth in 15 years — and a new chief information officer. In August, Gov. Ron DeSantis chose a political ally, state Rep. James Grant, to head up the Florida Digital Service, which is modeled after the federal division of the same name.
