Read by opinion leaders, policymakers, the vendor community and the government IT workforce, Techwire has a well-defined audience focused on the public-sector technology industry in California. We gather and publish news related to this community, documenting the efforts of those working to modernize California’s digital infrastructure.

Launched in 2011, Techwire is an independent website, not affiliated with any government agency or technology company. Support comes from sponsorship by nonprofit organizations and the technology companies listed on the homepage. In March 2014, Techwire was acquired by Government Technology publisher e.Republic Inc.
