Recommendations for Improved State IT Procurement

The state information technology (IT) community has long called for improvements in IT procurement processes and practices and state chief information officers (CIOs) are consistently dissatisfied with the state IT procurement process. In the 2015 state CIO survey, The Value Equation, roughly one half (47%) of state CIOs expressed negative outlooks on IT procurement processes.Because of this consistent level of dissatisfaction, NASCIO is advocating for procurement reform by issuing a call to action to states.
