Initiatives

  • The Device Client Management (DCM) program intends to complete the replacement of up to 3,000 devices, primarily laptops, for eligible employees. Increase funding to allow the County to establish a 5-year PC replacement policy in contrast to the current 6.5-year policy.

  • Create a TEBS training strategic plan and associated role-based learning paths, create training content, adopt vendor-based content, and manage the registration process to increase skills, knowledge, and adoption towards strategic priorities departmentally and organizationally. The plan encompasses Microsoft, Oracle, TEBS Internal and other IT training portfolios, including training required during IT projects or implementations.
  • Implement FiberNet3, a third-generation network design which impacts the speed in which digital information travels. FiberNet3 builds on the long-term success of County-owned fiber optic communications infrastructure to provide critical infrastructure for next generation communications and access to cloud services. Planned upgrades address emerging and long-term needs including: essential equipment and technology refreshes, an increased capacity to support growing bandwidth demands, and design enhancements to expand the breadth of service offerings. FiberNet3 upgrade objectives include: increased capacity access; flexible transport services over Montgomery County Public Libraries and Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDN) technology; Tier IV data center connection; more resilient internet services; direct connections to cloud-based service; enhanced quality of service for critical unified communications (VOIP, Video); support for new customer technologies and emergency demand; and growth opportunities for the County.
  • Provide Change Management support on enterprise IT projects or implementations that are new or currently in progress.

  • Lead business process re-engineering efforts in departmental and enterprise-wide projects and initiatives to increase efficiencies and better support our residents.

  • Develop internal training to prevent data leakage, or the transmission of private or sensitive data with unauthorized parties. This training will prepare users to utilize controls and permissions in the MCG data sharing platforms (OneDrive, SharePoint, Teams) to specify user access and prevent unauthorized data access.

Innovations and Productivity Improvements

  • Developed several constituent-facing web applications aimed at providing resources to residents and small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Established a strategy to keep the network up during high volume response by applicants.


  • Established the necessary infrastructure and support to swiftly migrate the organization to a telework environment in support of business continuity during the COVID-19 emergency efforts. Established necessary security and 24/7 help desk support during the critical transition with little to no interruptions in revenue collection or business operations.

  • Partnered with the Department of Permitting (DPS) to begin a business re-engineering strategy to upgrade their permitting system to include a cloud-based solution with enhanced functionality for permit processing and customer service.
  • Renegotiated and consolidated the Microsoft Enterprise Agreement (EA). The Microsoft EA provides a comprehensive agreement combining software and services to support Montgomery County's Telework strategic initiatives including improved security, licensing, and required infrastructure for recovery efforts.


  • To answer the technology needs of the County vaccine distribution program, TEBS delivered a pre-registration system to allow County residents and workers to input critical information to determine their tier for vaccination. The system provided a virtual phone agent to automatically address inquiries in both English and Spanish, resolving approximately sixty percent of incoming calls before reaching a human; email and text notifications to keep pre-registrants informed of their vaccination status; and a user-friendly solution to allow public health resources to efficiently manage the large amount of data to process vaccinations.


  • Managed the development and implementation of web-based, mobile-friendly, COVID-19 testing, and notification solution, which provides an end-to-end service allowing a County resident, worker or employee to register, test and be notified of test results within a 24-48 hour window. Over 10,000 tests have been conducted via this Microsoft solution.
