California Chief Information Officer Clark Kelso favors "sunshine."

Mark Morris

California Chief Information Officer Clark Kelso is recommending that the state establish a new management board with broad control over information technology policy.

The board would adopt statewide strategic IT plans to support operations and conduct ongoing reviews of the state's IT procurement, oversight and security programs, the governor's office said Feb. 14.

"The board will bring transparency and sunshine to the most important IT decisions facing the state," Kelso said.

This is part of a final set of recommendations from Kelso to Gov. Gray Davis for establishing a permanent IT governance structure following the abolishment of the state's Department of Information Technology last July.
