STAND. COM. REP. NO. 2436

 

Honolulu, Hawaii

 

RE: S.B. No. 2837

S.D. 1

 

 

 

Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi

President of the Senate

Thirtieth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2020

State of Hawaii

 

Sir:

 

Your Committee on Technology, to which was referred S.B. No. 2837 entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY STEERING COMMITTEE,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

The purpose and intent of this measure is to amend the composition and appointing authority for the Information Technology Steering Committee.

 

Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Department of Education, Office of Enterprise Technology Services, and Transform Hawaii Government.

 

Your Committee finds that the Information Technology Steering Committee was established to assist the Chief Information Officer in developing the State's information technology standards and policies. Representation on the Information Technology Steering Committee from various executive branch departments provides valuable opportunities for collaboration regarding technology matters. Your Committee further finds that it is in the best interest of the public to allow the members of the Information Technology Steering Committee to serve without regard to term limits because of their institutional knowledge of the State's complex information systems and for the Superintendent of Education and President of the University of Hawaii to appoint representatives to the Information Technology Steering Committee.

 

Your Committee has amended this measure by making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for the purposes of clarity and consistency.

 

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. 2837, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 2837, S.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Judiciary.

 

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