Mission Statement

The mission of the Department of Technology and Enterprise Business Solutions (TEBS) is to be responsive, collaborative, and innovative in providing technology solutions and services to facilitate the delivery of a wide range of services in all branches of government. The Department strives to provide its solutions and consultative services in a cost-effective, timely, and high-quality fashion to reduce service times, avoid inflated costs, reduce information security risk, and improve the quality of County services through automation-assisted process improvement. The Department facilitates business and reengineering processes to improve legacy workflow and streamline services to our customers.

TEBS is responsive by providing measurable solutions and services to internal and external partners, customers, and constituents, when and where they are needed; securely enabling County employees to provide quality services and information to internal entities, residents, and businesses; and enhancing project management to improve contract management and overall performance.

TEBS is collaborative as it provides expert consultative service to partners including internal customers, external agencies, and the public and private sectors to increase the productivity of County government, businesses, and residents; and to assist with technology enabled economic, workforce development, and community digital equity initiatives.

TEBS is innovative as it identifies and implements technology solutions to address business needs that enhance value and enable continuous measurable improvement.

Initiatives

  • Continue to implement an enterprise driven IT governance model that is focused on responsiveness, collaboration, and innovation by centralizing the adoption of a more agile approach to technology initiatives, expanding the use of low to no-code technologies, and developing and staffing an enterprise IT project development governance model that emphasizes a solid business strategy.
  • Continue to modernize the technology and centralize the information across Montgomery County Government, resulting in improved efficiencies, and a unified infrastructure to drive data driven decision making. This modernization is the foundation to continuously improve the overall experience for stakeholders and citizens.
  • Examine and envision how an investment in Artificial Intelligence (AI) can bring efficiency in decision making and problem solving, enhanced security, and foster effective decision making across the enterprise, by funding AI solutions that boost customer service, resident expectations, and their experiences with government services.

Innovations and Productivity Improvements

  • Established a governance structure and procedures within the Enterprise Office of Project Management that enabled the organization to successfully manage and deliver enterprise projects that significantly impact the organization, are highly complex, and subject to significant risks.
  • Created a new Office of Public Safety Programs and Regional Interoperability (OFPS) to assist in the strategic planning, consultative designing, implementation, operations, and maintenance of mission-critical county-wide and regionally integrated public safety systems and services.
  • Published the first-ever Enterprise Information Technology (IT) Service Catalog, providing departments with ongoing references to the technology services available, which will provide a simple and standardized way for departments to submit requests for new engagements. Requesters will experience a consultative and inclusive process by which their needs are discussed, solutions are evaluated, and plans are enacted to resolve the business needs. The online catalog will improve service delivery to the departments while providing TEBS with useful data for strategic planning and continuous improvement.
  • Expanded cybersecurity capabilities to combat today's and tomorrow's increased information security threats by implementing next-generation Endpoint Detection and Response capabilities to further protect desktops and servers from advanced attackers and malicious software, and by implementing an Enterprise Mobile Application Management (MAM) solution, which enhances the County's data security and mobile threat protection by standardizing the list of supported applications ("apps"), instituting a required access code, and restricting the copying and saving of County data to personal mobile devices and accounts.
