Who We Are

Led by State Chief Information Officer (CIO) Keone Kali, the Office of Information Management and Technology (OIMT) is leading the business and technology transformation efforts for the State of Hawaii.

In recognition of the pivotal role that technology and innovation hold in Hawaii’s transformation, Act 200, 2010 Session Laws of Hawaii, formally established the full-time CIO position. In July, 2011, the state’s first CIO was hired followed by staff for the new office. Meet a few members of OIMT’s senior staff below.

We would like to thank the Omidyar Ohana Fund of the Hawaii Community Foundation for its support of the state’s technology transformation initiative. Our team appreciates the foundation’s dedication to improving the quality of life in our island communities.
