The ACT mission is to advise and educate government on how to improve its operations and services to citizens through the use of information technology. The organization fulfills this mission by providing educational opportunities such as conferences, forums, program events and Communities of interest (CoI) activities, as well as professional development and other collaborative opportunities of value to the government IT community. The bedrock of ACT-IAC is enabling a trusted environment of collaboration between government and industry professionals.

Staff and member volunteers work closely together as partners to achieve the mission.
