The state of Utah has once again been recognized as a leader in delivering online government services and information. The Center for Digital Government has recognized Utah in the 2021 State Government Experience Awards. Utah finished second overall among states in the Government Experience awards, which recognize the progress and innovation in the delivery of online services among state and local governments. Utah has placed in the top three of the overall awards in every year it has been eligible since 2006, including first-place finishes in 2007, 2009, 2017 and 2018.
DTS is working on a Salt Lake Data Center Exit project. We need to move from the current location at the Capitol complex as the facility is slated to be demolished within the next two years. The data center houses the servers that host state agency IT applications and systems.
The transition from the current data center to another location will be seamless for state agencies. DTS will work to migrate the systems and applications without any downtime for state agencies. We will be working with all teams to ensure a smooth transition to the cloud or other options.
Effective July 1, 2021, the Division of Technology Services became part of the Department of Government Operations. This change is a result of the Utah Legislature passing S.B. 181. Alan Fuller is Director of the Division of Technology Services and Chief Information Officer. This change will not affect the way you work with the Division of Technology Services.

The DTS website has had a makeover! In an effort to make it even easier for all state agencies and customers to get help, we’ve made a service portal.
You can now easily navigate to DTS products, and you can submit a new help ticket with just a few clicks. Simply log in to dts.utah.gov, select Online Form New Ticket, complete the three form fields, and click Submit. It’s that simple. You can also check the status of your request in real time in the My Tickets tab on the left-hand side of the homepage.
We hope the new Service Portal can better meet your needs, both now and moving forward.
