Joseph J. Rabito has been named the interim director and chief information officer of the state’s Office of Information Technology Services. Rabito replaces Robert Samson, who left the agency this month. Rabito has previously worked as Governor Cuomo’s deputy secretary for intergovenmental affairs. While he lacks information technology experience, Rabito states that ” Under Gov. Cuomo’s leadership many of my prior assignments in New York have focused on leading effective large-scale change, streaming processes, cutting red tape and creating efficiencies in complex organizations very similar in scale to ITS.” Rabito’s main goal will be to evaluate how state agencies acquire technology.
