STANDARDS BIT has established standard practices for development, processing and services
  • Rules and regulations are essential to any well managed organization. Standards are valuable to our clients because of the cost savings, faster support and reliable technology infrastructure. They serve to establish uniform practices and common techniques used as guidelines to measure performance.

    For example, with one standard email system, a small number of administrators can maintain a system supporting all of state government. If the state had two email systems, the number of administrators and support staff would double with no corresponding benefit in functionality. The same principle applies to system designs, writing programs and setting up operations in a data processing center. All of which require certain individual skills, standard policies, procedures and equipment.
