Your Committee on Higher Education & Technology, to which was referred S.B. No. 1307, S.D. 2, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY PROJECTS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to establish an Information Technology Modernization Program Management Office within the Office of Enterprise Technology Services to provide guidance and support to major public information technology projects of state departments and agencies and the University of Hawaii System.
Your Committee finds that establishing an Information Technology Modernization Program Management Office will provide state departments and agencies with a central resource and guide for each major information technology project, offer best practices, and potentially help resource their modernization efforts. This measure supports ongoing efforts to enable the State to improve its technology capabilities and modernize its delivery of services and programs.
(1) Changing the effective date to July 1, 2060, to encourage further discussion; and
(2) Making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for the purposes of clarity, consistency, and style.
Your Committee notes that the funding for the establishment of the Information Technology Modernization Program Management Office is intended to come from a special fund that is available to the Office of Enterprise Technology Services.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Higher Education & Technology that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 1307, S.D. 2, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 1307, S.D. 2, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Finance.
