Florida eyes tech reorg

Florida State Technology Office

Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has proposed reorganizing the State Technology Office (STO) to deal only with policy and strategy, transferring information technology operations and services to another division.

Under his proposed budget submitted to the legislature yesterday, the STO, which operates as an independent agency within the Management Services Department (DMS), would retain 26 employees and have a $3.2 million budget.
