DIR IT Leadership Technology Driven Value 

Strategic Planning and Reporting 

Planning and Reporting Framework

The framework consists of Technology Legislation, the State Strategic plan, the Technology Resources Planning section of the Agency Strategic Plan, the Biennial Performance Report, Technology Legislation, and the Information Resources Deployment Review.

State Strategic Plan

Every odd year, DIR publishes a rolling five-year plan for the top IT priorities across the state. The priorities set forth in the State Strategic Plan provide a roadmap for agencies to develop the Technology Resources Planning section of their Agency Strategic Plans. This plan is due to state leadership by November 1. 

Agency Strategic Plan

Every even year, agencies are required to produce an Agency Strategic Plan. DIR provides instructions for the Technology Resources Planning section of the plan. In this section, agencies report on how their planned technology solutions align with the priorities established from the State Strategic Plan. This plan is due to DIR around June.

Biennial Performance Report

Every even year, DIR publishes the Biennial Performance Report  PDF (6.1 MB). This document looks back at the priorities from the State Strategic Plan and reports on their progress by consolidating the information from Agency Strategic Plans. The report also includes legislative recommendations and adjunct reports on specific technology areas. This report is due to state leadership by November 15.

Information Resources Deployment Review

Every odd year, agency Information Resources Managers (IRMs) complete the Information Resources Deployment Review. This is a standardized survey used for evaluating each agency’s technology environment and to confirm compliance with certain statutes, rules, and standards. The results are sent to DIR and the Quality Assurance Team. If agencies are non-compliant in certain areas, they must submit a Corrective Action Plan. This review is due in December.
