Examiner News Briefs, April 3

Monmouth County has entered into a shared service agreement with Brookdale Community College in the area of technological services (IT).

The Brookdale Community College Office of Information Technology (Brookdale OIT) and Monmouth County Information Technology Services (Monmouth County ITS) have been working together to evaluate IT challenges. The two departments discovered a potential shared service model that represents value and a reduction in duplicity, according to a press release.

“This initiative is another great example of the importance of shared services,” said Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone. “By joining these networks together, we will save taxpayer money and increase efficiency of services, which is exactly what shared services are intended to do.”

Brookdale OIT, in Lincroft, plans to partner with Monmouth County ITS, in Freehold, to connect both local area data networks. The partnership will create an 8-mile network connection between the college and the county and demonstrates the practice of leveraging both data and voice networks, according to the press release.

The initiative will allow the two agencies to expand data networks, increase their technical capacity and deliver competent services with less financial investment, according to the press release.
