In the last year, the Lillooet Tribal Council has established its own IT department to provide the best possible support to staff and end dependency on external contractors. This has included everything from developing IT policies to upgrading the network infrastructure.
Other key changes include:
Security software for all staff computers
An organizational backup and disaster recovery plan
Upgraded network infrastructure and internet connectivity
Establishing best practices to maximize what our tools can do for us
A cost per user center was created for the IT budget
We are currently collecting data/reports to show sustainability for the internal IT department which we hope will lead to providing IT support fro surrounding St’at’imc communities. This will be an important step in moving towards self-government for the St’at’imc nation.
