Reporting is a big part of our work. For starters, every agency at the state level must report on their technology to DIR. These reports help shape the “State Strategic Plan for Information Resources Management”—a plan we issue every other year that lists technology priorities and a five-year plan for addressing them.
On even-number years, DIR provides the Texas Legislature with the “Biennial Performance Report on the Use of Information Resources Technology,” which details how our state agencies are fulfilling the state’s technology priorities and how legislators can help. We also track technology-related legislation during every legislative session, including those informed by our recommendations.
Finally, we offer each state agency’s Information Resource Manager with the tools and resources they need to collaborate with and report to DIR.
