Strategic Planning is important to the Department of Administration, Division of Enterprise Technology. It drives investment decisions and how those investments support the goals and targets of the agency and the State. Collaboration amongst business, finance, IT, procurement, facilities, and other leaders, creates synergies. These connections enhance the State of Wisconsin’s ability to implement strategic and tactical plans.
The Wisconsin Statutes 16.971(2)(m) and 36.59(1) require the Department of Administration (DOA) to “formulate and revise biennially a consistent statewide strategic plan for the use and application of information technology.” To craft this statewide plan, we built upon annual strategic IT plans developed and submitted by executive branch agencies. Nearly all executive branch agencies, boards, and commissions, are part of this strategic plan. We also brought together representatives from agencies large and small, including agency chief information officers (CIOs), administrative officers, and deputy secretaries, to develop guiding principles, goals, objectives, and benchmarks that formed the essence of this statewide strategic IT plan.
DOA's 2030 Vision Strategy
is to transform state government to be smaller, more efficient, and better aligned to serve the needs of Wisconsinites, which requires investing now in planning, design, and modernization. The goals are outlined in this vision strategy.
