Project Management

DoIT is working to fundamentally change the way the state does IT by increasing the use of business oriented project management. DoIT has begun that process by creating a Project Review Committee to review state agency projects at critical milestones so that projects can be kept on track before valuable time and resources are expended. The review process, combined with the concurrent development of statewide standards and architecture also will allow much better coordination among projects to reduce overhead cost and provide for the best solutions.

Architecture

DoIT has begun the process of defining a set of standards, policies, procedures and technologies to best serve the state. This "architecture" will provide a framework for the development of cost-effective solutions for the information technology challenges facing the state. Equally important, the architecture process will be dynamic to allow for changes as technology enhancements are created and the state's needs change.

Policy

DoIT has cooperatively developed a draft of a core set of usage policies as the first step in the development of a comprehensive set of policies. The adoption of statewide policies will provide for consistency among state agencies and free up the administrative burden associated with information resource management at the agency level.
