§5A-6-1. Findings and purposes.
The Legislature finds and declares that information technology
is essential to finding practical solutions to the everyday
problems of government and that the management goals and purposes
of government are furthered by the development of compatible,
linked information systems across government. Therefore, it is the
purpose of this article to create, as an integral part of the
Department of Administration, the Office of Technology with the
authority to advise and make recommendations to all state spending
units on their information systems and to have the authority to
oversee coordination of the state's technical infrastructure.
