About the Hawaii IT Strategic Plan
The Hawaii Legislature adopted HCR 94 SD1 in 2018 requesting an update to the State of Hawai‘i IT Strategic Plan to ensure that our state is maximizing modern resources in the delivery of services, information and data. This was out of recognition that technology is constantly evolving. Working groups were convened consisting of public- and private-sector leaders as well as state employees to refresh and update the plan, which was subsequently approved by the IT Steering Community on April 25, 2019, and delivered to the Governor and administrative and legislative leadership.
