DAS details budget proposal
The DAS proposed budget for the next biennium supports the mission of the agency and furthers Governor Mike DeWine’s priorities.
“The DAS budget request prioritizes data-driven investments that support the DeWine-Husted administration’s goals of easing access for those doing business with the state, prioritizing an innovative and secure technical environment, creating efficiencies across state agencies, and investing in a secure Ohio,” said DAS Director Kathleen Madden during her testimony on Feb. 21.
Highlighting the budget are proposals to:
- Improve communication among first responders by fully paying the monthly subscription fees for government subscribers using the Ohio’s Multi-Agency Radio Communication System (MARCS) in each year of the biennium.
- Invest $45.9M to transition Ohio to Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1).
- Strengthen the state’s cybersecurity operations to protect state assets and citizen information.
- Increase advantage pricing available through consolidated information technology purchasing.
