FY2023 IT Plan is Now Available
The Information Technology Plan is an overview of the agency IT project detail for the current year. DTS utilizes the IT Plan data to identify potential multi-agency use, necessary IT services needed for successful completion of the projects, and a cost breakdown for each project.
In accordance with UCA 63A-16-203, each executive branch agency must submit an agency information technology plan to the chief information officer on an annual basis. The IT Plan is the list of IT projects for the upcoming year, which helps DTS plan resources based on agency needs. DTS analyzes the projects in the plan to determine the impact to costs, operations, and services provided. DTS also uses the IT Plan to ensure compliance with the state’s overall IT strategy and potential areas for coordination among agencies.

Google Chrome Issue
Google recently updated its Chrome browser, introducing profile separation.
This update prevents inadvertent sharing of personal data with work accounts to make a clear distinction between work and personal items. This prevents personal bookmarks, history, and passwords from being synced into your @utah.gov account, and vice-versa.
If you use the Google Chrome browser, you will need to take the following action when you see the prompt below:
1. Select the checkbox to “Keep local browsing data (bookmarks, passwords, history, etc.)” and click “Continue”
2. Click your Chrome Profile icon (your profile picture) in the top right side of your browser and select “Turn on sync…”
3. In the new “Turn on sync?” window select “Yes, I’m in”
Please see this document for additional information if needed.
If you have already clicked through the dialog box and appear to have lost bookmarks, history, etc., you can contact the DTS Helpdesk or submit a ticket for help resyncing your data.
