Technology is transforming the way our government interacts with the public, while making state agency operations more efficient, transparent, and secure for Hawaii residents. You can read about some of these examples like the implementation of Adobe eSign, the Kaena Point park permitting system and the data center colocation agreement.
The Hawaii State Legislature plays a critical role in expediting this transformation.
During the 2016 Session, for example, the legislature passed SB 2807, SD 2, Relating to Enterprise Technology Services, which gave the state Chief Information Officer authority to ensure that technology investments are cost effective, planned for future growth, and have the operational flexibility to easily adapt to changing needs.
In the 2017 Session, THG is asking for lawmakers’ continued support for these kinds of bills, which will be highlighted in upcoming editions of this bulletin.
Watch the governor and legislators talk about continuing the momentum.
