13 Identify the Strategic Plan for the State of Texas Proprietary and Confidential - Gardant Global 13 Instructions for Technology Resources Planning Section of the 2015–2019 Agency Strategic Plan Planning for technology resources is a key component of the strategic planning process. Statewide and agency planning provides a roadmap for the implementation of enterprise and agency-specific technology solutions that will result in more efficient expenditure of limited resources and more effective delivery of services to Texas citizens and agency constituents. TECHNOLOGY INITIATIVE ASSESSMENT AND ALIGNMENT “Technology Initiative Assessment and Alignment” describes how technology will be deployed within the agency to address its organizational objectives. For the purpose of this section, a technology initiative is defined as a current or planned activity that will improve, expand, or significantly change the way information technology (hardware, software, services) is used to support one or more agency objectives. A technology initiative may correspond to one or more projects in the agency’s Information Technology Detail or Biennial Operating Plan, or it may not be specifically referenced as a project.

14 Identify the Strategic Plan for the State of Texas Proprietary and Confidential - Gardant Global 14 For each of the agency’s current or planned technology initiatives, provide the following information 1.Initiative Name: Name of the technology initiative. 2.Initiative Description: Brief description of the technology initiative. 3.Associated Project(s): Name and status of current or planned project(s), if any, that support the technology initiative and that will be included in agency’s Information Technology Detail. 4.Agency Objective(s): Identify the agency objective(s) that the technology initiative supports. 5.Statewide Technology Priority(ies): Identify the statewide technology priority or priorities the technology initiative aligns with, if any. a)Security and Privacy b)Cloud Services c)Legacy Applications d)Business Continuity e)IT Workforce f)Virtualization g)Data Management h)Mobility i)Network 6.Anticipated Benefit(s): Identify the benefits to the agency, the state, and citizens/customers that are expected to be gained through the technology initiative. Types of benefits include: a) Operational efficiencies (time, cost, productivity, reduced error rate) b)Citizen/customer satisfaction (service delivery quality, cycle time, cost, mobility, accessibility) c)Security improvements d)Foundation for future operational improvements (including legacy system modernization) e)Compliance (required by State/Federal laws or regulations) 7.Capabilities or Barriers: Describe current agency capabilities or barriers that may advance or impede the agency’s ability to successfully implement the technology initiative.

15 The Ultimate Strategic Sourcing Vehicles… GSA Source Deltek Under the Cooperative Purchasing Program, state and local government entities may purchase a variety of IT products, software, and services from contracts awarded under GSA Federal Supply Schedule 70, Information Technology, as well as from contracts under the Consolidated (formerly Corporate Contracts) Schedule containing IT special item numbers. Only a handful of states purchase directly off of Schedule 70; states can most often achieve competitive pricing through their own term contracts and avoid GSA’s industrial fee. Local governments, K-12, and higher education organizations are historically more receptive to GSA Schedule 70 for the administrative and time savings, and leveraged pricing. California, New Mexico and Texas negotiate contracts based on GSA Schedules. Florida, the District of Columbia (open to all federal contracts), Georgia, New York City, and Ohio governments all proactively leverage Schedule 70 contracts.
