E-discovery

The e-discovery team provides essential e-discovery discovery services internally to EOTSS and as a service provider to executive branch and independent agencies.

Privacy

The privacy program focuses on the statutory mandate to “promote privacy and security in the use and dissemination of sensitive data, and to [facilitate] resolution of concerns regarding privacy and security in the use of data” (M.G.L. c. 7D, s. 4B). The privacy program works closely with the EOTSS legal, risk, data, security, digital, and contract management teams.

Artificial Intelligence

These Guidelines for the Use and Development of Generative Artificial Intelligence establish minimum requirements for the procurement, development, and use of generative AI by Executive Department Agencies. The goal of these guidelines is to ensure that Executive Department Agencies are procuring and using AI Systems responsibly and that AI systems meet legal, ethical, security, and privacy best practices.
