This section provides an overview and history of how the Executive Governance Committees process has matured over the years along with current projects and their status.
Prior to 2007, the Commission on Information Management (IMC), presided over IT projects in the state. The IMC was composed of both private and public sector members appointed by the Governor. Senate Bill 07-254 dissolved the IMC, which resulted in the establishment of the Executive Governance Committees (EGC) to improve cross-departmental collaboration and to better manage the existing major IT project portfolio. The governance model revolves around the creation of eight EGCs that provide oversight for logically-grouped departments/offices. Each EGC includes members designated by departmental executive directors and is chaired by the EPPMO Director.
Other projects are reviewed for consideration as an EGC project if they meet at least one of the following criteria:
A comprehensive certification process is executed on each project to ensure proper structure and processes are in place to execute the project. In addition, EGC projects are also required to have a certified project manager, a certified assistant project manager and require Independent Validation and Verification services.
