The IT Department provides technology consulting, system development, Internet

development, support and network services to County departments and agencies.
Today's Department of Information Technology had it's start in the 1970's, when
Freeholder George F. Makin was instrumental in establishing the Department of
Data Processing to automate and upgrade the County government's processing of
payroll, vendor payments, and other financial data.
As the payroll, accounting, and budget needs of Ocean County grew, manual
processing became obsolete and was replaced by electronic processing which
could produce and prepare larger quantities of information more expeditiously.
Advances in technology in the last thirty years have enabled many centralized
processing activities to be decentralized throughout all County agencies to
individual employee workstations utilizing personal computers.
