Tulsa's Chief Information Officer Tom Golliver, who has been on paid administrative leave since October, has submitted his resignation effective Dec. 31.
City Manager Jim Twombly on Thursday told the Tulsa World that firms are being interviewed to conduct a top-down review of the Information Technology Department.
Twombly said he could not comment about Golliver's resignation.
Golliver was removed from his post following a misinterpreted hacking scare of a city computer server.
As a result, the city's Web functions were not working for weeks, and letters were sent to 90,000 people who had applied for jobs or made crime reports online and warned them their personal information may have been compromised.
It turned out that the breach was from a third-party firm the city had hired to test the network for security vulnerabilities.
Twombly said the chief information officer/IT Department director job Golliver has held will be posted for applicants at the start of the year.
Police Maj. Jonathan Brooks will continue to lead the department in the meantime, he said.
