In the fall of 2009, Scott County issued an RFP to acquire consulting services to perform a Technology Assessment and a Five-Year Strategic Technology Plan. The County was looking for a Strategic Technology Plan that would guide the direction of technology with specific recommendations for projects and the associated costs, timelines, and action plans to help the County achieve its mission and business goals. This new 2010 plan continues the practice the County established in 2000 and 2005 when a Technology Strategic Plan was initially developed and then updated and brings the County Strategic Technology Plan up to date. The County hired Berry, Dunn, McNeil & Parker (BDMP), an accounting and management consulting firm from northern New England, to assist with this project.
This strategic technology planning project concluded in April 2010. The Strategic Technology Plan was developed collaboratively with all County departments and offices, BDMP, & the County Project Team.
On Tuesday May 18, 2010 BDMP presented the final draft of the Scott County Strategic Technology Plan to the Board of Supervisors, Elected Officials, Department Heads and other county personnel. On Thursday, June 10, 2010 the Scott County Board of Supervisors approved this Strategic Plan to serve as a road map for Scott County technology initiatives over the next five plus years.
