Government Covergence of Technology Services

12/14/2016 10:16:00 AM

We imagined that a “Metropolitan Information Technology Services” organization could be formed of technologists “from” government “for” government that could provide high value, low cost technology services.  In some circles, that may be referred to as “Government Convergence of Technology Services (GCoTS)”.  As Gus Gentner and WinCo DoIT has become effective with servicing internal government users, we set our focus on helping other governmental agencies throughout Winnebago County. In a few short years, WinCo DoIT has developed and delivered a model of IT support services for non-traditional government users.  The types of services provided are labor, email, server, storage, bandwidth and technology consulting.  With serving over 40 other agencies, WinCo DoIT made a contribution to the General Fund of over $1M during the last six fiscal years.  GCoTS is consistent with intergovernmental cooperation initiatives and goals.  Discussion and ideas of regionalization may now be contemplated.
