LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1546, as amended, Burke. Public contracts: information technology: contractor performance assessment report.
Existing law establishes in state government the Department of Technology within the Government Operations Agency. Existing law provides that the Department of Technology is responsible for the approval and oversight of specified information technology projects. Existing law requires specified contracts for the acquisition of information technology projects to be made by or under the supervision of the Department of Technology.
Existing law sets forth requirements for the acquisition of goods and services by state agencies and sets forth the various responsibilities of the Department of General Services and other state agencies in overseeing and implementing state contracting procedures and policies. Existing law requires, unless otherwise expressly provided, that all contracts for the acquisition of information technology goods or services be made by or under the supervision of the Department of General Services.
This bill would require the Director of Technology, by January 1, 2019, to develop a standardized contractor performance assessment report system to evaluate the performance of a contractor on any information technology contract or project reportable to the Department of Technology, as provided. The bill would require the Director of Technology to implement that evaluation system for all reportable information technology contracts and projects, as specified, and would require that system to be used in addition to any other procurement procedures when evaluating or awarding those contracts or projects.
