Our goals for Fiscal Year 2022-2023 include migrating to a new core financial system known as Workday and assisting agencies using technology business management (TBM) to mature their IT portfolio management initiatives using TBM data driven analysis.
TBM gives a financial view into the state’s IT Portfolio Management program, providing information that’s used for analysis of the state's information technology infrastructure, including its value, condition, and capacity. See RCW 43.105.220.
A foundation of the Office of the Chief Information Officer’s TBM program is to review and assess IT investments captured in the state’s core financial system. Agencies are in the process of moving from the existing core financial system (AFRS) to the new Workday core financial system in June 2022, as part of the state’s One Washington’s program.
The One Washington program is a multiyear effort to migrate the state’s core finance, procurement, budget, human resources and payroll into a unified system. The OCIO’s portfolio management effort includes providing "kick start" maturity sprints for agencies advancing past the Cost Pool and IT Resource Tower stage. This will allow for greater financial insight into application total cost of ownership, major IT project budget versus actuals, cloud technology and business capabilities.
To ensure we get the message to key stakeholders and the general public, the OCIO makes all agency IT spend information publicly accessible and provide presentations at executive level meetings, to legislative members, agency leadership and the Technology Services Board.
