Item 434 #2h

Virginia Information Technologies Agency


Page 421, line 53, after "agencies.", insert:

“All state offices and agencies shall modernize and protect the Commonwealth's IT information systems, where appropriate, by expeditiously leveraging commercial cloud computing services that comply with rigorous security requirements throughout state government while driving cost savings and achieving new efficiency.”


(This amendment requires that all state agencies should purchase off-the-shelf, commercial, cloud-based technology when possible if it meets the IT security standards established by VITA with the intention of conserving state funds.)
