Information technology within city administration develops in the manner that it transforms from information, technical and technological support services to a linkage that enables a better functioning of all the city administration organisational units. In addition to the computerisation of the city administration departments, the IT Department actively takes part in the computerisation of utility companies, other companies and institutions founded and owned by the City, by creating an integrated IT system within local self-government on the principle of distribution.
Such strategy is included in the development of a unique IT system relation that is based on:
- technical and technological grounds
- programme support to system functioning
- the electronic communication system.
