State of Hawaii IT Strategic Plan

The State of Hawaii IT Steering Committee, in conjunction with a public-private work group, completed an update the state’s IT Strategic Plan.

State updates plan

In 2018, the Hawaii Legislature passed HCR 94 requesting an update to the state IT Strategic Plan in order to document progress thus far and chart the course over several years to improve the delivery of information and services to citizens, businesses and all those who work with and rely on our state government. Such a plan had the potential to provide legislative recommendations to consider going into the 2019 session, including those relating to the management, sharing and use of data in ways that empower leaders, employees, businesses and citizens.

On April 25, 2019, the IT Steering Community approved the updated plan. This was followed by the passage of additional legislation requiring the state chief information officer and the Office of Enterprise Technology Services to update the plan every four years and submit the updated plan to the governor and the Legislature.

A modern IT system would significantly improve how the state manages its $14.4 billion annual budget, creating benefits for everyone.
