OCIO Decision Package (DP) Prioritization and Ranking for the 19-21 Biennial Budget

OCIO Decision Package (DP) Prioritization and Ranking for the 19-21 Biennial Budget. 

Per RCW 43.105.240 and 43.88.092, as part of the Governor’s budget submission, the director of the consolidated technology services agency provides information technology budget detail. To do this, the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) reviews agency Decision Packages (DP)s each budget cycle to assess how the agency Information technology requests are aligned with the Washington State Enterprise Technology Strategy.

Decision Package Prioritization

Formal IT expenditure prioritization occurs on an annual basis as part of the state’s budget building activity. The Governor and the Legislature look to the OCIO to provide guidance on whether an agency's proposed IT expenditure is sound and consistent with the state’s IT strategy to inform policy decisions on the allocation of limited state funds.
