Information Technology

The Information Technology (IT) department covers both the city and school departments.   It is the responsibility of the IT department to maintain the City's infrastructure, PCs, various software and database applications and other related peripherals (such as printers, scanners, copiers, etc.).  Working in conjunction with all City departments, the IT department utilizes the latest in technology to better provide pertinent information to City management and the citizens of East Providence in a comprehensive and cost effective manner.

In the last few years, the IT department has replaced many components to the City's network (such as routers, switches and a firewall).  A new spam filter was also installed to protect the City's network from viruses.  An on-line Citizens request package was also installed to better service our residents.  Working with all departments, a new web site was also unveiled that allowed the City to incorporate a search tool, site map, newsletters and surveys.
