State IT Department Moves to One Location

Posted: Updated:

Employees of the state's Information Technology Department say they are happy to finally be under the same roof.

A week ago the department moved into a new 85,000-square-foot building. Previously, its 340 employees were scattered between five different locations in Bismarck.

Mike Ressler, the state's chief information officer says the rapid increase in employees recently left them scrambling for office space, and the new building was needed to ensure efficiency.

"What I'm most excited about is we have a network operations center. They are located in two or three different locations, and the fact that they're not only in the same building but actually in the same room. I'm really excited about the efficiency we're going to see from that group and what that translates into really is better service to our customers," says Mike Ressler

The building was not built by the state, but by the private vendor Lexstar.
