OIT Technology Standards

 

Governor’s Office of Information Technology (OIT) Standard Setting Process and Form (#100-15)

 

Standards Overview 

 

A standard is a set of product or service specifications, characteristics, or performance requirements applicable to IT resources that are required or permitted by §24-37.5-101 et seq. C.R.S for the Governor’s Office of Information Technology (OIT) to set in place. OIT has authority to establish and apply standards to state agencies and public agencies, as defined by 24-37.5-102 and 24-37.5-401 C.R.S., respectively. OIT will set standards to increase efficiency, improve security, or enhance functionality through standardization and uniformity. The term “standard” is NOT synonymous with policy, procedure, rule, or consolidation.

 

The decision to set a standard shall be based on:

 

a) a statutory mandate to set a standard, or

b) a determination that an opportunity exists to create efficiency, improve security, or enhance functionality through standardized or uniform products, services, or procedures.

 

Standards may be set by means of:

 

a) competitive solicitations or

b) business decisions made by the Chief Information Officer (CIO) or delegate or Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) or delegate.

 

OIT will strive to set standards in the most competitive way reasonably possible. A business decision will be based on consideration of:

 

a) professional assessment of state needs,

b) functionality of existing and available information technology resources,

c) compatibility with existing state information technology resources,

d) market availability of support for information technology resources,

e) long term ability to avail the state of competitive purchasing opportunities, and

f) recommendations from recognized “standards groups.” 

 

Who can propose a standard?

Anyone from state agencies and public agencies, as defined by 24-37.5-102 and 24-37.5-401 C.R.S., may propose a standard by contacting their Agency IT Director to assist them in completing the analysis found in the Governor’s Office of Information Technology (OIT) Standard Setting Process Form #100-15 and submitting to CTO-EAteam@state.co.us.
