Current Bill Summary

SB 1067 - This act creates the "Office of Enterprise Technology", which shall be within the Office of Administration. The Governor shall appoint a state chief information officer, with the advice and consent of the senate, who shall oversee the office.

The office is charged with furthering the development of information and communications technology. The office will work with state agencies to develop information technology and manage resources so that new information technology systems are used efficiently and cost-effectively. Further, the office shall ensure the security of the state's information and technology systems and services.

The chief information officer shall coordinate the state's information and telecommunications technology systems and services to serve the needs of state government. The officer shall design a master plan for such systems and services for the state and its political subdivisions and report on the plan to the general assembly and the governor each year. A state agency may not undertake an information and telecommunications technology project until it has been evaluated by the chief information officer. If a project is not approved, the Commissioner of the Office of Administration shall cancel its appropriation.

The chief information officer is required to establish, and update as necessary, methods for developing information and communications systems appropriate to the specific needs of individual state agencies. In consultation with the attorney general and appropriate agency heads, the officer shall develop cyber security policies and install security systems on the state's computer facilities consistent with these policies.

A state agency that implements electronic government services for fees must use a single entry site created by the chief information officer. Finally, the officer shall develop a system under which state business can be conducted through electronic communication with the appropriate state agencies.
