We are Transform Hawaii Government
At Transform Hawaii Government (THG), we focus on clarifying obstacles impeding progress and identifying solutions ensuring the state moves information technology (IT) modernization projects forward for the benefit of Hawaii’s workforce, businesses and residents. Improving government business practices through technology enhances transparency, accessibility and engagement. It also provides secure access to reliable information and data on demand for everyone relying on it in the public and private sectors. Our mission is to catalyze modernization of state government services through people, processes and technology to help Hawaii thrive.
We aim to keep Hawaii government accountable
THG was instrumental in developing the state’s first information technology strategic plan in 2011 as well as hiring its first chief information officer (CIO) in 2012. Since then, we have worked closely with every CIO to accelerate transformation. In 2018, the Hawaii State Legislature passed HCR 94, which called for an update of the state’s IT Strategic Plan aimed at improving the delivery of information and services to citizens, businesses and everyone working with and relying on our state government. THG was instrumental in passing this important legislation, which has become a catalyst for positive change in a number of departments alongside implementation of the Hawaii Information Technology Strategic Plan in 2019. We continue to monitor the plan on an annual basis and track its progress year-round. The IT Strategic Plan, as well as other state department plans, are available online.View The Plans
