Information Technology Project Appropriation Process
The bill clarifies that a review by the JTC as requested by the JBC may include a request for an information technology project submitted to the JBC by the legislative or judicial department, the department of law, the department of state, or the department of the treasury. The bill requires the JTC to oversee any such information technology project that receives an appropriation from the information technology account (account) within the capital construction fund.
The general assembly is currently authorized to make appropriations for information technology projects to state agencies and to institutions of higher education from the account. The bill clarifies that the general assembly may appropriate money in the account for information technology projects that are not subject to review by the JTC and instead are submitted directly to the JBC by the legislative or judicial department, the department of law, the department of state, or the department of the treasury.
