CiviTek Background
CiviTek is a wholly owned subsidiary of FCCC and was
established to provide enterprise services and project
management services, including information technology,
to the Clerks, in order to meet legislative directives and
serve the public in the most efficient manner.
CiviTek is managed by a seven-member board of Clerks,
elected each year by their peers.
The CiviTek model is similar to those in use by other local
government associations in Florida.
Revenues in excess of current expenditures are reinvested
into project enhancements and used as reserves for
contingencies and future projects.
CiviTek Background
Established in 1991, the Services Group’s goal is to
develop programs that benefit Florida’s Clerks of Court
and Comptrollers and state agencies in gathering Clerk
data to better service Florida’s citizens.
The objective of these programs is to provide high-value
services at economic prices, in order for Clerks and state
agencies to maximize the use of scarce public resources.
The consortium approach became FCCC’s primary way of
assisting Clerks to implement new technology; to provide
standardized, statewide services; and to establish secure,
highly reliable processes for mission critical functions.
