Resources

When you think of the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR), your first thought may be contracts or DIR-provided services like CCTS, TEX-AN or certain Information Security services. In this Resources section, however, we provide additional useful tools and guidance to help government entities and institutions of higher education fulfill their many statutory requirements:

  • Document Library. A vast library of searchable IT-related documents for state agencies and institutions of higher education including policies, technology briefs, procedures, and other publications.
  • Domain Name Registration. Guidance and instructions for state agencies and counties on how to register a texas.gov domain name.
  • EIR Accessibility. Accessibility-related information, including agency roles and responsibilities and EIR Coordinator roles and responsibilities, a broad list of tools and resources such as online tutorials, and more.
  • Statewide Project Management. Project management guidance including Project Delivery Framework templates (for “major” technology projects) and PM Lite templates (for small-to-medium-scale projects under $1 million).
  • Strategic Planning and Reporting. A roadmap to the state’s technology goals, access to relevant reports, including the State Strategic Plan, Biennial Performance Report, and more, plus guidance for completing agency reports.
  • Technology Legislation. Technology-related legislation passed into law during the 84th Texas Legislative Session (2015)

  • Information Security. Products and services to help protect critical information resources

  • DIR Basics Series. Video clips of webinars, along with the slides used in the presentations, that provide an overview of DIR's programs and resources
