DIR Information Session

Major Information Resources Projects Updates


Good, consistent project management is the foundation for successfully delivering projects within budget and on schedule. While Texas agencies have great autonomy in managing IT projects, the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) provides guidance through rules, policies, guidelines, and tools that help agencies plan and manage IT projects. The 87th(R) Texas Legislature recently made some important changes to the major IT project oversight process.

We invite you to join us on Tuesday, October 5th for an overview of the legislative updates and preview the changes to the Project Delivery Framework.
