[WEBINAR] A CASE STUDY ON GOVERNANCE @ GEORGIA TECHNOLOGY AUTHORITY
Date: February 13, 2019
Time: 11:00 AM EST
The Georgia Technology Authority (GTA) currently manages the delivery of IT infrastructure services to 85 Executive Branch agencies and managed network services to 1,300 state and local government entities. IT infrastructure services encompass mainframes, servers, service desk, end-user computing, disaster recovery and, security; 14 agencies receive all of these services through GTA, while the remaining agencies may receive two or three of these services. Managed network services include the state’s wide and local area networks, voice, cable and wiring, and conferencing services.
Both categories of services are provided as shared services through a public-private partnership called the Georgia Enterprise Technology Services (GETS) program. A Multisourcing Service Integrator is responsible for coordinating and overseeing the delivery of services by multiple providers. GTA is responsible for service provider oversight and management as well as governance.
Meanwhile, GTA promotes an enterprise approach to technology by establishing statewide IT policies, standards and guidelines based on industry best practices and federal requirements. GTA works closely with the Governor’s Office of Planning and Budget and state agencies to ensure an individual agency’s IT strategy aligns with its overall business strategy and business continuity planning. GTA is involved in managing the state’s portfolio of technology projects to ensure they meet established goals and are completed on schedule and within budget.
Learn how these practices are setting a standard and example for good governance nation-wide.
