Like many governments, California faced challenges when procuring and executing major IT projects. With a $4.5 billion dollar price tag riding on 54 major IT projects, the Governor convened a Task Force to identify weaknesses and “provide the best thinking” to keep California IT initiatives on time, within budget and within scope.

Join the Center for Digital Government for a live webinar as we discuss the challenges and recommendations to help streamline planning, improve performance, speed- up delivery of major IT plans.

During this interactive event, we will be discussing how to:

  • Streamline pre-solicitation and planning process
  • Understand business requirements to define a sound acquisition strategy
  • Make timely and prudent decisions
  • Create flexibility in the procurement process
  • Hold Vendors accountable for their performance
  • Foster communication and trust between the state and vendors
