The core purpose of Civic Innovation and Technology (CIT) is to enable Louisville Metro Government to deliver valued services to the community. This is accomplished by providing quality services that meet the needs of Metro Government agencies. This guide is a brief description of those services. Civic Innovation and Technology has selected preferred providers and products as part of the standard service offerings. These were selected because they offer the most cost effective service to meet the business need. CIT staff has been trained to assist with implementing and supporting these services for Metro Government.
