Item 428 #2h

Virginia Information Technologies Agency


Page 376, line 36, after "Grumman." insert:

"VITA shall prioritize efforts to modernize current information technology services and to make available to agencies, where appropriate, commercially-offered information technology services including but not limited to cloud computing, mobile, and artificial intelligence."


(This amendment requires that all state agencies should consider 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.)
