Florida Agency for State Technology (AST)
The Agency for State Technology (AST) was established in 2014 by the Florida Legislature to oversee the state's essential technology projects and house Florida's Chief Information Officer. The agency will maximize IT resources, saving taxpayer dollars and delivering more efficient and effective constituent services in the Sunshine State.
Per Florida Statute, the AST is now the parent agency for the State Data Center, which consists of the former Northwood Shared Resource Center (NSRC) and the Southwood Shared Resource Center (SSRC), now called AST-Northwood and AST-Southwood, and are transitioning to functioning as one unit. All agency customers for both data center locations will not have any change in their customer status nor in the services they currently receive from the data center.
Our Mission: To achieve success through technology.
Our Vision: To be the national leader in government technology.
