This audit found that the Government
Information Technology Agency (GITA) did not take the appropriate steps to
ensure that a $30.6 million state-wide IT contract it negotiated was
beneficial. Additional justification and reviews are needed prior to entering
into future state-wide IT contracts that commit the State to over $1 million.
To ensure its objectivity, GITA also needs to develop a policy to ensure its
independence when reviewing state agencies’ IT projects. Finally, the
Statewide Technology Licensing Agreement (STLA) account should be allowed to
sunset because it has never been used and it is not needed.
