LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 754, as amended, Grayson. Department of Technology: GIS data: regional notification centers.
Existing law establishes the Department of Technology within the Government Operations Agency, which is supervised by the Director of Technology. Existing law authorizes the director and the department to exercise various powers in creating and managing the information technology policy of the state. Existing law includes among the director’s duties the duty to perform enterprise information technology functions and services, including, but not limited to, implementing Geographic Information Systems (GIS), shared services, applications, and program and project management activities in partnership with the owning agency or department.
Existing law requires every operator of a subsurface installation, including specified private entities and any state or local public agency except the Department of Transportation, to become a member of, participate in, and share in the costs of, a regional notification center, defined to mean a nonprofit association or other organization of operators of subsurface installations that provides advance warning of excavations or other work close to existing subsurface installations, for the purpose of protecting those installations from damage, removal, relocation, or repair.
This bill would require the department to provide access to GIS data to a regional notification center, as specified, for purposes of enabling the regional notification center to make a determination as to whether GIS data can improve the regional notification center’s accuracy in performing its functions, and, if so, would authorize a regional notification center to enter into a contract with the department to receive GIS services. data. The bill would authorize the department to collect payment from a regional notification center for providing GIS data pursuant to those provisions. The bill would provide that a state agency is not liable to a regional notification center or other third party for providing GIS data pursuant to these provisions.
