RE: S.B. No. 797
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, 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:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to authorize the Chief Information Officer to approve, or expedite the approval process of:
(1) A state agency's management information system project that is budgeted at $1,000,000 or more; and
(2) Other projects that the Chief Information Officer deems necessary to expedite.
Your Committee received written comments in support of this measure from the Office of Enterprise Technology Services and Transform Hawaii Government.
Your Committee finds that expediting the approval of large information system projects will allow the State to better find economies of scale throughout the state government system. Your Committee further finds that the flexibility to expedite the implementation of new technologies will increase efficiency, reduce waste, and improve access to government services.
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. No. 797, S.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
