Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred S.B. No. 1307, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY PROJECTS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to improve the implementation of major information technology projects in the State by establishing the Information Technology Modernization Program Management Office within the Office of Enterprise Technology Services.
Your Committee received written comments in support of this measure from the Department of Accounting and General Services, Office of Enterprise Technology Services, and Transform Hawaii Government.
Your Committee finds that there are currently multiple information technology modernization projects in progress, including projects to replace information technology systems for unemployment insurance, disability compensation, financial management, child and family welfare, behavioral health, and state employee benefits.

Your Committee has amended this measure by making technical nonsubstantive changes for purposes to clarity, consistency, and style.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Ways and Means that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B.
