Biennial Performance Report

Published every even year, before the start of the legislative session, the Biennial Performance Report (BPR) on the Use of Information Resources Technologies by Texas State Agencies is one of the mechanisms through which we make your technology needs known to the Legislature. 

The most recent BPR was published in November 2020 on this website and the Texas Open Data Portal.​

Using information consolidated from the Information Resources Deployment Review and other reports, the BPR provides a snapshot of the progress made and the barriers encountered in advancing the technology goals identified in the 2020-2024 State Strategic Plan​. The BPR also identifies recommendations for improving statewide IT and presents them for consideration by the Legislature.
