Governor Doug Burgum has announced the appointment of Greg Hoffman as the Chief Information Officer (CIO) of the North Dakota Information Technology (NDIT) department.

Hoffman’s appointment is effective immediately, following his tenure as interim CIO since June 1.

He succeeds former CIO Kuldip Mohanty, who resigned for family reasons.

Hoffman has been a key figure in NDIT since 2005, beginning his career as the agency's first budget/rate analyst. He was appointed deputy CIO in April 2022 and has led the Administrative Services Division since 2014.

“Greg possesses a deep understanding of NDIT’s operations and knows the importance of strong customer service. He collaborates with agency partners to deliver technology solutions to best serve North Dakota citizens,” said Governor Burgum. “We’re grateful for Greg’s nearly two decades of service. We look forward to his leadership of NDIT as it continues to prioritize customer service, employ emerging technologies such as AI, and enhance cybersecurity to ensure that citizen data entrusted to the state remains safe and secure.”

Hoffman holds bachelor’s degrees in accounting and business administration, as well as a Master of Business Administration from the University of Mary in Bismarck.

“Being appointed as the CIO for NDIT is both an honor and a significant responsibility,” Hoffman said. “I am committed to building on our recent progress by focusing on customer service, leveraging emerging technologies like AI, growing the data literacy of government overall and continuing an emphasis on our cybersecurity posture. Together with our talented team, we will continue to innovate and deliver technology solutions that best serve the citizens of North Dakota, ensuring their data is secure and their needs are met efficiently and effectively."

NDIT serves over 250,000 North Dakotans daily with a range of services including computer equipment, software, communications, cybersecurity, networks, applications, GIS, servers, storage, and data. The department operates with a $275 million budget and oversees more than $500 million in projects.
