New York State Technology SWAT Team Playbook
This Playbook provides recommendations and guidelines for any government entity that is standing up a similar Technology SWAT Team effort.
Teams Will Be Deployed Across Areas Such As Technology, Operations, Analytics and Communications
Open to any Company or Technologist Regardless of Industry
Seeking Highly-Trained Civic-Minded Technologists
Teams will assist in the State’s coronavirus response for 90-day service deployments.
Teams or Cohorts Preferred
Our highest need is for teams or cohorts of individuals from a single institution.
In-Person or Locally-Based is Ideal
Given that many employers are having many workers work from home, volunteers would collaborate virtually with New York State teams. So, preference will be given to those in the Eastern and Central US timezones but we are open to the west coast as well.
New York State’s Coronavirus Response
Learn about the state's response to the pandemic and find resources on quarantines, travel advisories, mental health and so much more.
Support New York's response. New York State is doing all it can to keep New Yorkers safe and stop the spread of COVID-19. But we’re stronger if we all work together.
The Executive Chamber’s Technology and Innovation Portfolio and the Office of Information Technology Services (ITS) will coordinate the deployment of the SWAT Team and solicit additional volunteers as industry demonstrates interest in the effort. For questions about the program please reach out.
