Medicaid Information Technology Architecture Governance Board Overview

In order to provide strategic direction and tactical oversight for the Medicaid Information Technology Architecture (MITA), the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) originally established the MITA Governance Board (MGB) on December 14, 2016. The Board is being revitalized in 2023 with a new focus on updating the MITA framework to reflect current business and technical best practices in Medicaid. The Board is a cohesive, effective group that will ensure MITA continues evolving to support a common Medicaid business and information technology framework for states and vendors.
