Virginia unveils IT plan

Virginia Gov. Mark Warner approved a strategic plan for technology that requires agencies to begin consolidating the state technology infrastructure next year to improve service delivery and government operations.

The long-awaited Commonwealth of Virginia Strategic Plan for Technology for 2002-06 was released Sept. 25 by Warner and Secretary of Technology George Newstrom. The 125-page plan took five months to develop.

The plan "will revolutionize government service delivery to our citizens and result in long-term structural changes that will make our technology resources more effective and efficient," Newstrom said.

The plan calls for developing a comprehensive, statewide information security program and overhauling state administrative systems in finance, planning and budgeting and human resources.

Areas that provide the greatest opportunity for IT consolidation are data centers, servers, vendor platforms, mainframes, storage and help desks, according to the plan.
