Description

Section 1: Currently, the office of state planning and budgeting is
required to prepare the forms and instructions to be used in preparation
of all budget requests and supplemental budget requests submitted to the
joint technology committee (JTC). For a budget request for a major
information technology project (major IT project) submitted to the JTC
for funding in the 2020-2021 state fiscal year or any state fiscal year

thereafter, the bill requires the forms and instructions to include the
submission of a written business case specifying certain information
about the major IT project.
Section 2: Beginning July 1, 2019, if a governmental body enters
into a contract pursuant to the Procurement Code that is reasonably
expected to cost at least $1 million and that requires the contractor or any
subcontractor to perform work on a computer, then the governmental
body shall ensure that the contract requires the contractor to use qualified
software to verify that the hours billed on the contract are valid and fulfill
the purpose of the contract. The governmental body shall also ensure that
the contract specifies that the governmental body will not pay the
contractor for hours worked on a computer unless the hours can be
verified by the use of qualified software.
A contractor required to use qualified software pursuant to a
contract with a governmental body is required to store, or contract with
another entity to store, data collected by the qualified software for 7 years
after the governmental body has paid the contractor for work performed
pursuant to the contract. The contractor is required to retrieve data upon
request of the governmental body in the format requested by the
governmental body.
A governmental body is prohibited from paying a contractor's costs
associated with the contractor's use of qualified software and is prohibited
from paying a contractor for retrieval of data collected by the qualified
software.
Section 3: For budget requests for a major IT project submitted to
the JTC for funding in the 2020-2021 state fiscal year or any state fiscal
year thereafter, a governmental body is required to provide for a change
management plan, including specified information and the resources
necessary for the execution of the change management plan.
Governmental bodies are required to seek best practices with private- or
public-sector experts when appropriate to develop and implement change
management plans and are required to provide written change
management plans to the JTC and the office of state planning and
budgeting.
