When the Georgia Technology Authority (GTA) was created in 2000, the General Assembly charged GTA with compiling information from state agencies about their IT expenditures and presenting a report to state leaders every year. This charge was placed in state law (see O.C.G.A. 50-25-7.10). With comprehensive and accurate information, state leaders can make facts-based decisions about the allocation of limited state resources to support technology.
The Georgia Annual State Information Technology Report conveys the current state of technology in Georgia state government as assessed by the State Chief Information Officer (State CIO).
The report represents information technology for the state's executive branch agencies only, i.e., those reporting to the Governor. It does not address information regarding information technology matters related to the legislative branch, judicial branch, statewide constitutionally elected officeholders, or the University System of Georgia. Data used to create the report comes directly from executive branch agencies and enterprise systems of record. The data is compiled by GTA and reflects the efforts of the State CIO to improve the use of technology in supporting state government operations. The report contains the following major sections:
- Executive Summary
- Information Technology Vision and Strategy
- Georgia’s Approach to Rural Broadband
- Information Technology Investment Management
- Technology Services
- Digital Services Georgia
- Georgia’s Information Technology Excellence
