Creating excellence in public service technology!

The goal of the CGCIO Florida program is to provide public sector technology professionals with educational experiences that will enhance their abilities to serve as leaders in their jurisdictions and behalf of the state.

Currently two certification programs are being offered: Certified Government Chief Information Officer (CGCIO) and the Certified Public Technology Manager (CPTM).

These programs were developed through a partnership between the John Scott Dailey Florida Institute of Government (FIOG) and Florida Local Government Information Systems Association (FLGISA).

The CGCIO certification is a national certification offered in partnership with Public Technology Institute (PTI) and the University of North Carolina.

Who can become certified?

The certification programs are open to technology professionals at all levels in state agencies as well as in any city, county, school district, constitutional office, quasi-governmental, or non-profit organization. Technology professionals in private companies are accepted at the discretion of program leadership.
