STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1229
RE: S.B. No. 797
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Economic Development, to which was referred S.B. No. 797, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE OFFICE OF ENTERPRISE TECHNOLOGY SERVICES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
(1) Provide the Chief Information Officer with the authority to approve, or expedite the approval process of, a state agency's management information system project that is budgeted at or more than $1,000,000, or any other project the Chief Information Officer deems necessary to expedite; and
(2) Require the Chief Information Officer to annually report the status of all pending or completed projects over $1,000,000, including whether they are on time and on budget.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from Transform Hawai‘i Government.
Your Committee finds that technology is an important tool for improving access to government services. By allowing certain information system projects to be expedited by the Chief Information Officer, this measure creates opportunities for economies of scale across the government system and helps to fulfill the Hawaii Information Technology Strategic Plan.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Economic Development that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 797, S.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Economic Development,
SEAN QUINLAN, Chair
