4 Address FY11 Budget Shortfall Immediately
Secretary’s July 15th Memo underscores the seriousness of the situation. IT Admin accounts are facing a $11M shortfall. Addressing this gap has been our number 1 priority. We are exploring all methods available to minimize impact to jobs Solution Set includes Consolidation for savings Reduction in usage and services Reduction in contracted personnel and Solution Providers Voluntary HR initiatives, and Capital funding opportunities Our timeline to solve this is as soon as possible within Q1

5 Confirm our Plans for Desktop, Help Desk and Call Center Consolidation
We support over 26,000 desktops, 24,000 telephones, 4 Networks, 9 Help desks & Call Centers. Executive Order 510 requires these services to be consolidated at the Secretariat’s level. We are initiating a 4 week exercise to develop implementation plans for such consolidation Expect reorganization, retooling and redeployments and new opportunities to be part of this plan. Shall finalize the implementation timeline in August.

6 Complete Wave 1 Transition Plans
Wave 1 is the consolidation of over 400 HHS servers into a virtualized environment at ITD and the associated transfer of HHS IT staff to ITD. Over 80 personnel applied for 54 positions available. 35 positions have been filled. Transition planning is underway to address the “gaps” that have resulted at HHS These transition plans are being developed at the individual level in consultation with the current and future supervisors. As we manage shaping our new reorganization, and identify new opportunities at HHS, we need to be informed by the Wave 1 gap implications

7 Kick off the HHS IT Governance Process
As we solve for the budget shortfall and manage impact to agency IT Service Delivery Models due to IT consolidation, we need to maintain a clear and aggressive communication channel with our Business Stakeholders To that end, we have kicked off the HHS IT Governance Board process Each Agency Commissioner, Business Head is nominating one representative to this body We expect our first meeting within three weeks.

Response to submitted Questions – 10 Min 3 Questions and Answers – 15 Min 9

10 Q&A Can we host weekly technology seminars to foster internal transfer of knowledge about EOHHS IT technologies? We would like to see an IT organization with fever silos and more collaboration When will we finalize the organizational placement of Data Analysis and Reporting group at MassHealth Is there any plan to invest in an enterprise asset discovery tool I have heard IBM Tivoli shall replace CA When will TPL employees get pay raises Are there going to be operational impacts of moving to Quincy? What job functions shall remain at the Agency, HHS, ITD level What agencies shall be coming to HHS next and when? What impact will Secretary Bigby’s message regarding staff reductions have on future consolidation of agencies?

11 A Few Final Thoughts I appreciate the anxiety and stress and we are feeling due to the budget and lack of complete definition on consolidation I am committed to make responsible decisions, in close collaboration with the Secretariat Executives, and move our IT organization ahead through these challenges. We will get past it. We are all being asked to do more with less – and I appreciate the “stepping up” I see happening on a daily basis While these are trying times, these are also times of new opportunities within HHS IT. Seize them! You have my commitment to communicate with you aggressively at each step along the way How can you help? - Continue doing the very best job you can in serving the needs of our customers AND keep an open mind for new ways of doing things And I think Paul – the Octopus is a FLUKE!
