The misalignment between enterprise IT solutions and an organization’s business objectives is a concern in most organizations, including local government. Some organizations implement IT governance to align IT and the business and to better manage IT investments and spending. This article uses a case study approach that employs the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CCMI) to explore the initiatives taken by a local government agency with a focus on the alignment of IT projects with strategic business objectives and how it might continue to achieve alignment and optimize IT spending on strategic priorities. This agency is at the beginning stages and is developing structures, processes, and relational mechanisms to ensure IT projects align with strategic business objectives.
