The Information Technology Advisory Committee (ITAC) was formed in August 1997 to serve as an advisory group to the Board of Commissioners with the charge of reviewing the County's strategic information plan and project plans for major, new automated systems with respect to:
- Justification of the system, including tangible and intangible benefits to Wake County;
- Adequacy of the system functions to solve the business problem(s) addressed by the system; and
- appropriateness of the technical approach used with the system.
The Committee was also directed to provide appropriate coordination with any existing advisory bodies that may also have interest in the planned systems and monitor the implementation of major automation projects and periodically report to the Board of County Commissioners
The group consists of 10 members, one appointed by each County Commissioner and three appointed by the County Manager. Members serve two-year staggered terms
The Committee meets monthly and, in addition to providing advice and guidance on the County's strategic technology plan and associated business plans, it also reviews current plans and projects to help ensure that Wake County is using technology appropriately and effectively in the conduct of County business
