PLANNING (Agency IT Plans)
Information Technology has become increasingly important to the efficient and effective operation of state government. As technology choices become more and more complex, it is ever more important that we develop a strategy around our lines of business to strengthen our technology base and offer more services to government, citizens, and business.
AGENCY IT PLANNING SUPPORT
Planning is a prerequisite to the budget process and the procurement of information technology software and services. All agencies, boards, and commissions are required by legislation to submit an information technology plan each year. ITS has staff available to work with your agency planner to develop and prepare your IT Plan. An online IT Planning System is provided as a plan repository.
EMERGING TECHNOLOGY COORDINATION
ITS utilizes partnerships with the leading IT research and advisory firms, national government technology organizations, and vendor relationships to identify, analyze, and track new technologies or products that could benefit state government. ITS staff, in conjunction with these partners, develops emerging technology awareness programs to provide exposure and current information for our customers.
INFORMATION SECURITY PLANNING RESOURCES
The Information Security Division of ITS provides consulting services to agencies in the planning, design, and implementation of agency security plans and projects.
