California Information Technology: Serving 21st Century Constituents

2016 Update to the Conceptually Approved IT Project Proposals

State IT Project Proposals which have been approved in concept by the Department of Technology are listed on the Conceptually Approved IT Project Proposal Report. This report is produced on a quarterly basis with updates highlighted since the last quarter. The report captures IT project proposals that were submitted through the Project Approval Lifecycle as Stage 1 Business Analysis forms (S1BA). This report replaces the former Annual IT Capital Plan (ITCP).

These IT Project Proposals will be subject to additional evaluations concerning their business value, programmatic priority, resource requirements, feasibility and the availability of funding as they proceed through the Stages 2-4 of the Project Approval Lifecycle as well as the budget approval process. When a state entity’s Stage 2 Alternatives Analysis is approved the concept will be removed from the Conceptually Approved IT Project Proposal Report, 2017 Update to the Conceptually Approved IT Project Proposal Report (pdf).
