Legislative Post Audit

The Office of Information Technology Services (OITS) has already started to consolidate IT services for cabinet-level executive branch agencies. OITS’ consolidation plan will likely increase state costs instead of achieving savings because it will include updating the state’s very old IT infrastructure. The estimated size of the cost increase varies from about $2.6 million to about $38.4 million annually depending on how many IT staff are reduced as a result of consolidation.
