Medicaid Information Technology Architecture Governance Board Overview

To provide strategic direction and tactical oversight for the Medicaid Information Technology Architecture (MITA), the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) established the MITA Governance Board (MGB) on December 14, 2016 through the MITA Governance Charter. The Board is a cohesive, effective group that will ensure MITA continues evolving to support states’ maturity needs and provide a common Medicaid business and information technology (IT) framework for states and vendors.

What is the Board’s Role?

  • Brings needed expertise to address business, technical, and information gaps in the current framework
  • Partners and builds strong relationships with the Medicaid community and other entities to maintain cross-stakeholder representation
  • Provides an agile approach to making timely updates to MITA

Selection Process

We seek candidates from targeted MITA stakeholders’ organizations and fill board vacancies as needed. Interested candidates may nominate themselves or be nominated by a member of a MITA stakeholder organization for a MITA Governance Board position. The CMCS management team will review all nominations and will accept or defer applications.
