About ITA

"Today, Information Technology is changing the world, making it more idea intensive, better connected, and ultimately more urban.” --Edward Glaeser, ​Triumph of the City

Under the leadership of Mayor Eric Garcetti, the Information Technology Agency (ITA) works with agencies and departments across the City of Los Angeles to develop world-class IT infrastructure and applications that provide our citizens, businesses, and visitors with the digital services they expect from a leading global city. 

The ITA recognizes this demand and our unique role as technology leaders in L.A. government. Our efforts to keep Los Angeles at the forefront of government accessibility, reliability, and innovation have been acknowledged. L.A. has been globally recognized among industry leaders in the use of digital technologies to deliver services and publish data for transparency and utility. and the ITA will continue to strive for  “Responsive, Responsible, and Excellent Technology” for its citizens into the future.

The breadth of our services necessitates close management to ensure integration and efficiency
between our divisions, while maintaining a clear focus on specific customer groups and their unique needs.
