Open Source Development and Support

The Department of Better Technology works with government organizations to build and maintain custom applications, or to support open source applications that already exist. Through working closely with organizations like Code for America, we're able to find, integrate, and support web and information technology projects well below standard market prices.

IT Project Strategy

We can also act as technical advisors to your internal projects. We help local governments think through technical projects, provide technology advice on how to craft RFPs, and help get great local or national vendors to bid on them. By using us as an outside strategist, we're able to save you thousands of dollars. We help organizations ask for the right thing, plan small, agile procurements, and get the right people at the table for the job.

Supporting The Inside

We don't just deal with "citizen experience" -- we think that employee experience matters too. You and the people you work with should be using software you love using. Software that is not only great to look at, but also gets you home on time. We hand-craft pixel-perfect software for the guts of government.
