STAND. COM. REP. NO. 337

 

Honolulu, Hawaii

 

RE: S.B. No. 850

 

 

 

Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi

President of the Senate

Twenty-Ninth State Legislature

Regular Session of 2017

State of Hawaii

 

Sir:

 

Your Committees on Government Operations and Economic Development, Tourism, and Technology, to which was referred S.B. No. 850 entitled:

 

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

 

beg leave to report as follows:

 

The purpose and intent of this measure is to require the Chief Information Officer to identify the information technology projects of the executive branch, including the Department of Education and University of Hawaii, that shall be subject to independent verification and validation, and award, administer, and manage the contracts of identified projects.

 

Your Committees received testimony in support of this measure from the University of Hawaii System. Your Committees received comments on this measure from the Department of Education and Office of Enterprise Technology Services.

 

Your Committees find that requiring independent verification and validation for projects that involve substantial risk and expense will contribute to the efficient and effective functioning of state government, and the success of state modernization initiatives.

 

As affirmed by the records of votes of the members of your Committees on Government Operations and Economic Development, Tourism, and Technology that are attached to this report, your Committees are in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 850 and recommend that it pass Second Reading and be referred to your Committee on Ways and Means.

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committees on Government Operations and Economic Development, Tourism, and Technology,
