The CIO is statutorily responsible for approving state agencies’ procurement of IT products and services through the eProcurement process and purchase request process through the project portfolio management tool.
To allow for a more timely and efficient process when purchasing lower cost IT products, the CIO has delegated authority for procurement of certain IT products to executive state agencies as described in this Procurement Information Memorandum.
Additionally, the CIO has delegated the IT procurement process to the state purchasing director to promote consistency in state government procurement.
