The Office of the Chief Technology Officer, OCTO, “develops and enforces policies and standards for information technology in the District government. OCTO identifies where and how technology can systematically support the business processes of the District's 68 agencies. Agencies can draw on OCTO's expertise to get the most out of their technological investments. OCTO also assesses new and emerging technologies to determine their potential application to District programs and services. Finally, OCTO promotes the compatibility of computer and communications systems throughout the District government.”
