Purpose of this Framework

The purpose of this framework is four-fold:

  • Unify the vision and strategic direction of state IT (in support of Governor Inslee’s goals) for our stakeholders—the Governor’s Office, the Office of Financial Management, the agencies and institutions we serve and support, the Legislature, the people of Washington, and the private sector vendor community.
  • Guide investment priorities as well as strategic decisions about technology solutions, new initiatives and policy, and provide context for agency-specific IT agendas.
  • Improve the state’s ability to identify and measure outcomes/return-on- investments.
  • Increase the transparency and accountability of the OCIO.
