(2) With input and recommendations from state agencies, the State Chief Information Officer each biennium shall adopt an Enterprise Information Resources Management Strategy in accordance with ORS 291.039 (State Chief Information Officer). The Enterprise Information Resources Management Strategy must, among other functions, enable the State Chief Information Officer to manage and oversee distributed information technology assets throughout state government. The Enterprise Information Resources Management Strategy shall prescribe the state government-wide infrastructure and services for managing these assets. The State Chief Information Officer shall submit the Enterprise Information Resources Management Strategy to the Joint Legislative Committee on Information Management and Technology for review.

(3) Following review by the Joint Legislative Committee on Information Management and Technology, the State Chief Information Officer shall ensure state agency implementation of the Enterprise Information Resources Management Strategy, including the development of appropriate rules, policies and standards along with budget, resource and management plans that are necessary to implement the Enterprise Information Resources Management Strategy.

(4) State agencies shall participate in managing information technology assets in accordance with the Enterprise Information Resources Management Strategy and shall comply with the rules, policies and standards of the State Chief Information Officer.

(5) A state agency that implements an information technology initiative, as defined in ORS 291.035 (Requirement that state agency or public corporation obtain quality management services when implementing information technology initiative), that the State Chief Information Officer estimates will cost more than $1 million shall implement the information technology initiative under rules, policies and standards that the State Chief Information Officer develops, sets or adopts. The information technology initiative is subject to the State Chief Information Officer’s oversight and the State Chief Information Officer may require the state agency to obtain approval to implement the information technology initiative or may direct the state agency to stop or modify the implementation, cancel or modify a procurement related to the information technology initiative, modify the scope of the information technology initiative or take another action before awarding a public contract. After a state agency executes a public contract related to the information technology initiative, the State Chief Information Officer may direct the state agency to take any action in accordance with the terms and conditions of the public contract that the State Chief Information Officer deems necessary or advisable to administer and enforce the public contract, including directing the state agency to suspend performance or terminate the public contract in whole or in part.
