STAND. COM. REP. NO. 50

 

Honolulu, Hawaii

 

RE: S.B. No. 219

 

 

 

Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi

President of the Senate

Thirtieth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2019

State of Hawaii

 

Sir:

 

Your Committee on Technology, to which was referred S.B. No. 219 entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO ENTERPRISE TECHNOLOGY SERVICES,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

The purpose and intent of this measure is to require the Chief Information Officer, in conjunction with the Information Technology Steering Committee, to review, refresh, and submit the State Information Technology Strategic Plan every four years.

 

Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Department of Education, Office of Enterprise Technology Services, Oahu County Committee on Legislative Priorities of the Democratic Party of Hawaii, and Transform Hawaii Government.

 

Your Committee finds that periodic updates to the State Information Technology Strategic Plan are vital to keeping abreast with ever-evolving technology and to fully maximizing available modern resources to increase effectiveness, efficiency, and transparency in state government. This measure requires such an update to occur every four years.

 

As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Technology that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 219 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to your Committee on Ways and Means.

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Technology,
