Senate Bill 153
150th General Assembly (2019 - 2020)
The General Assembly has ended, the current status is the final status.
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 29 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE DEPARTMENT OF TECHNOLOGY AND INFORMATION TO ESTABLISH A STATEWIDE SHARED TECHNOLOGY SERVICES MODEL TO FACILITATE DIGITAL GOVERNMENT FOR CITIZENS, INCREASE EFFICIENCY, AND CONTROL SECURITY RISKS.
This legislation is based on information technology (“IT”) recommendations of the Government Efficiency and Accountability Review (“GEAR”) Board established by Governor Carney’s Executive Order Four. This act modernizes Chapter 90C of Title 29 of the Delaware Code and authorizes the establishment of a shared IT services model for state agencies. The shared services model centralizes the following duties and related executive branch personnel under DTI: technology end user support, cyber security, network management, server management, data management, IT project management, software application development/support, IT procurement oversight, IT fiscal planning, IT standards, and technology governance. This bill also reconstitutes the Technology Investment Council to increase state agency representation. The bill authorizes DTI to establish a transparent chargeback process for technology services in coordination with the Director of the Office of Management and Budget and the Controller General. In addition to facilitating the delivery of technology services in a consistent and comprehensive manner, technology centralization will position the State to stay abreast of technologies to enable innovation and enhance services to Delawareans. IT centralization also supports regulatory compliance requirements (e.g. IRS, CJIS), network and data security, and provides controls for the overall State IT landscape and spend.
