Planning pages for FY 2014 - 2016 Commonwealth IT Strategic Plan

The Plan

IT Strategic Planning for the Commonwealth is a collaboration between the CIO Cabinet and the wider IT and policy communities. ITD participates in and provides support for strategic planning activities. The plan titled IT strategy for the Commonwealth, FY 2009-2011: Building a Technology Foundation for the Future was published in August 2008. It outlines the high level strategy for information technology across Massachusetts state government through FY2011. This plan was updated in FY 2009 and FY 2010 (see update information below). We have recently initiated a planning effort to develop a new Strategic Plan for the Commonwealth spanning FY 2014 to FY 2016.
