Every year, the agencies DTS supports are required to submit a list of all IT projects to be completed during the year called the IT Plan. The IT Plan helps DTS identify upcoming projects and allocate resources where needed. DTS can also understand areas of coordination and collaboration among the agencies. The FY2017 IT Plan has been reviewed by DTS and is available here.
This year, the vast majority of the IT Plan budget is dedicated to the maintenance of a relatively few number of large systems. Thirty-four projects are in direct response to new legislative requirements. The majority (over 80%) of the proposed budget is oriented towards maintaining and upgrading existing systems.
Estimated Total Project Cost: $230,851,099
