LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1680, as amended, Burke. Director of Technology: procurement: training program. California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018.
Existing law, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, grants, commencing on January 1, 2020, a consumer various rights with regard to personal information relating to that consumer that is held by a business, including the right to request a business to delete any personal information about the consumer collected by the business, and requires the business to comply with a verifiable consumer request to that effect, unless it is necessary for the business or service provider to maintain the customer’s personal information in order to carry out specified acts.
The act prohibits a business from discriminating against the consumer for exercising any of the consumer’s rights under the act, except if the difference is reasonably related to value provided by the consumer’s data.
This bill would, instead, prohibit a business from unreasonably discriminating against a consumer for exercising of any of the consumer’s rights under the act.
The act authorizes a business to offer financial incentives for collection, sale, or deletion of personal information. The act authorizes a business to offer a different rate, price, level, or quality of goods or services to the consumer if that price or difference is directly related to the value provided to the consumer by the consumer’s data. The act, however, prohibits a business from entering a consumer into a financial incentive program unless the consumer gives the business opt-in consent for the program pursuant to a specified process. The act prohibits a business from using financial incentives practices that are unjust, unreasonable, coercive, or usurious in nature.
This bill would, instead, authorize a business to offer incentives, including payments to consumers for compensation, for the sale or retention of personal information, and make conforming changes to that effect. The bill would, instead, authorizes a business to offer a different rate, price, level, or quality of goods or services to the consumer if that price or difference is reasonably related to the value provided to the business by the consumer’s data, including offering a specific good or service whose functionality is reasonably related to collection, use, or sale of the consumer’s data. The bill would, instead, prohibit a business from entering a consumer into an incentive program unless the consumer gives the business prior opt-in consent after notice provided to the consumer. The bill would, instead, prohibit a business from using incentive practices that are coercive or usurious in nature.

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.
