About this Document

This document outlines the high level strategy for information technology across Massachusetts state government through FY 2011. It defines the vision for IT, the key initiatives needed to realize that vision, and the roadmap and guidelines for pursuing those initiatives. IT leaders from across the Commonwealth collaborated in developing this plan. It is sponsored by the Commonwealth's principal IT advisory groups, the Information Technology Advisory Board and the CIO Cabinet. It applies to all Executive Department agencies and to other government entities that choose to participate. We believe this plan will be relevant and helpful for business leaders and IT leaders alike. We thank the scores of people inside and outside state government who contributed their time, energy, and helpful input to this undertaking.
