Statewide IT Strategic Planning Underway

A message from Pam Haase, Deputy Director Strategic Initiatives

September 27, 2023 – This year, the California Department of Technology (CDT) will embark on developing the new Statewide IT Strategic Plan for California’s state government to replace its current plan, Vision 2023. This new three-year strategic plan will be used to provide direction and influence technology leadership throughout state and local government. The plan will be developed in partnership with the State’s IT leadership community through internal and external focus groups and surveys. 

The first step will be to close out Vision 2023 by performing lessons learned and celebrating the State’s accomplishments. The project will then evolve the vision, mission, goals, and guiding principles for State government IT organizations resulting in a new IT strategy. Other project components include developing a communications strategy to drive adoption, a governance model based on operational knowledge and challenges facing government IT environments, and a performance management framework with tools and metrics to measure future outcomes. CDT has executed a contract for consulting services to assist in the effort.
