About Us

In support of the DHHS Mission, DIRM provides enterprise information technology leadership to the department, counties, other state agencies, and their partners so that they can leverage technology, resulting ultimately in delivery of consistent, cost effective, reliable, accessible, and secure services.

DIRM works with DHHS and divisional management to help ensure the availability and integrity of automated information systems for the department and its constituent divisions and offices. We provide continuous review of all IT projects proposed and/or initiated throughout the department and divisions; we maintain a complete inventory of all such technology projects including ongoing project status; and we assist in the coordination of those projects having planned or potential department-wide or multi-divisional applications
