Hawaii Information Technology Strategic Plan


Implementation of Hawaii State Information Technology Plan Underway

When members of the State of Hawaii IT Steering Committee (ITSC) approved the Ige administration’s Hawaii State Information Technology Strategic Plan on April 25, 2019, the state was more than a year ahead of its requirement to deliver an updated plan to the Hawaii State Legislature as required by Act 238, SLH 2019.

Since the ITSC’s creation, the state has made solid progress in multiple areas of its tax system, enterprise payroll and time-attendance functionality, reducing paper use and embarking on the overhaul of its financial management systems.

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