Matt Devlin, Deputy State Auditor, OSA, discussed the history of the evaluation, which was required under House Bill 17-1361. Mr. Devlin summarized the purpose of the evaluation, which was to evaluate whether state IT resources have been properly consolidated under the Governor's Office of Information Technology (OIT) as required by statute. The evaluation looked at five major areas of consolidation, including:
- human resources;
- IT assets and infrastructure;
- cost savings and efficiencies;
- IT billing; and
- consumer satisfaction.
Based on the findings from the evaluation, 11 total recommendations were issued to OIT.
Mr. Devlin introduced Richard Boes, a consultant from BerryDunn, to the committee.
