The Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA) is the commonwealth's consolidated information technology organization. VITA's responsibilities fall into four primary categories:

  • Governance of the commonwealth's information security programs in support of the responsibilities of the Chief Information Officer of the Commonwealth;
  • Operation of the IT infrastructure, including all related personnel, for the executive branch agencies declared by the legislature to be "in-scope" to VITA;
  • Governance of IT investments in support of the duties and responsibilities of the Information Technology Advisory Council and the Chief Information Officer of the Commonwealth;
  • Procurement of technology for VITA and on behalf of other state agencies and institutions of higher education.

VITA provides outstanding service and technology solutions to support customers and address their business needs. Our services can be thought of as the information technology utility that supports specific agency requirements as they endeavor to deliver citizen services. While the agency works directly with the citizen, VITA works with the agency as a 'behind-the-scenes' service provider.

We have a clear mission and vision of what we are building for our customers, our employees and the citizens of the Commonwealth. Please review the information about VITA to learn about our organization, services and direction.

VITA Enabling Legislation

With the release of the Commonwealth of Virginia Strategic Plan for Information Technology in 2003 and the passage of House Bill 1926 (Nixon) and Senate Bill 1247 (Stosch), the Commonwealth embarked on one of the most sweeping reforms of information technology in the nation.
