IT Strategy and Investment Management

The IT Strategy and Investment Management program administers the State of Ohio’s investment planning process. As outlined in Ohio Administrative Policy IT-02, “Information Technology Strategic Investment Planning," this program:

  • Provides oversight, instruction and guidance to state agencies in the development of their annual Enterprise Planning Portfolios.
  • Supports the optimization of IT investments and IT assets through agency collaborations, leveraging technology solutions and identifying opportunities for enhanced business processes and the consolidation of technology solutions.
  • Allows an agency to establish application lifecycles and projects for budgeting purposes.
  • Facilitates an agency's identification and justification of planned IT initiatives that will support the business needs of the agency.
  • Provides evaluation and analysis support to agencies in the execution of IT procurements facilitated through the state of Ohio Release and Permit application.

The statewide IT Strategy and Investment Management program area serves as a gateway for the involvement and collaboration of both business executives and IT executives in the planning process and promotes the alignment of planned biennial IT expenditures to IT budget requests.    

The objective of the Strategy and Investment Planning Process is to manage state IT investments and ensure alignment with enterprise strategic direction. The intended process outcomes include: identifying shared service opportunities, increasing collaboration opportunities and coordinating buying power to leverage economies of scale.
