The Best of Utah awards honor emerging leaders and innovative projects in government IT that enable Utah to better meet constituent expectations for services and information, improve operating efficiency, and conserve tax dollars. The awards also provide an opportunity for state and local government in Utah to learn about IT leaders and projects that are changing the way government does business.
DTS Vision Statement
We will enable our partner agencies to securely leverage technology to better serve the residents of the State of Utah.

These Enterprise Policies help protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the State’s information and information systems. We appreciate your cooperation and collaboration in effectively keeping State data secure.
Statewide DTS Policies
The State IT Strategic Plan has defined the criteria for Enterprise Architecture to “provide a roadmap for moving the State of Utah IT infrastructure (i.e., processes, information and data, applications, and technology) from the current state to the future state.”

Goals & Projects
Here you will find a prioritized list of the technology innovations, goals, and directions DTS is currently working on to help State of Utah agencies achieve their business objectives.
Verizon Redundant Network Project
Many agencies rely on a solid network connection to conduct business, and the Verizon Redundant Network could be used in several locations where network connectivity is essential. The Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (DABC), which relies on a network connection to process credit card transactions, volunteered their stores for a pilot project. The Verizon private network can provide the redundant connection that the department would need in the event of network failure on the primary connection.
