The Human Services IT Advisory Group (HSITAG) was founded in 1993 by Bob Stauffer and a small group of professionals who met once a month for lunch to discuss a better way for industry to collaborate and work with government.

The organization serves as a trusted advisor to both policy and technology officials at the federal and state levels. In areas where industry has a consensus, HSITAG serves as subject matter experts and vendor-neutral viewpoints on many areas of HHS technology in governments.

We focus our efforts on these priorities:

  • Work with all levels of government to advance delivery of human service programs, improving communications and enhancing partnerships between state and federal human services agencies, non-profits and private sector IT firms.
  • Elevate the level of professionalism and promote open and fair competition in government human services procurements.
  • Serve as a resource on human services technology for governments and industry partners.
