LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1680, as amended, Burke. Director of Technology: procurement: training program.
Existing law establishes in state government the Department of Technology within the Government Operations Agency, supervised by the Director of Technology. Existing law requires the director, among other things, to advise the Governor on the strategic management and direction of the state’s information technology resources, to establish and enforce state information technology strategic plans, policies, standards, and enterprise architecture, and to produce an annual information technology strategic plan to guide the acquisition, management, and use of information technology. Existing law makes the department responsible for the approval and oversight of information technology projects.
Under existing law, specific public contracting provisions govern the acquisition of information technology goods and services, and require that the department make or supervise the making of contracts for the acquisition of information technology projects in accordance with that existing law. Under those provisions, except as specified, the department has the final authority in the determination of information technology procurement procedures applicable to acquisitions of information technology projects.
This bill would require the Director of Technology, in cooperation with the Director of General Services, to establish and oversee the implementation of a professional development training program and curriculum within the California Procurement and Contracting Academy for persons engaged in the procurement of information technology in accordance with those specific public contracting provisions, to develop, sustain, and advance their competency and skills in complex information technology acquisition. The bill would require the Director of Technology, in cooperation with the Director of General Services, to prepare and submit to the Legislature, by January 1, 2019, a report regarding the progress in establishing the training program.
