Each biennium, executive branch agencies (excluding Higher Education) submit information regarding major IT projects expected to meet or exceed a $500,000 budget (the “major” project threshold). This information includes details from agency IT operations plans, business cases, and self-scoring worksheets that outline the benefits and achievability of each project. A workbook of all major IT projects is compiled by ITD and sent to SITAC in the fall of each even-numbered year.

Per NDCC 54-59-02.1: The department shall submit information regarding proposed major information technology projects for executive branch state agencies, departments and institutions, excluding institutions under control of the state board of higher education and agencies of the judicial and legislative branches to the state information technology advisory committee . The committee shall review the projects and rank those projects that receive the committee’s affirmative recommendation. The chief information officer shall submit recommendations of the committee regarding the prioritization of major information technology projects to the information technology committee, the office of management and budget, and the appropriations committees of the legislative assembly. The judicial and legislative branches shall notify biennially the committee on their major information technology projects and priorities.

After reviewing the information, SITAC holds a meeting where agencies present a summary of their business case and respond to questions. Projects are grouped by funding source (General, Special, or Federal) and are ranked separately within each group. Initial ranking is based on the scores derived from the benefit/achievability worksheets, and the sorted list is then presented to SITAC for final ranking. The results are then communicated to the Office of Management and Budget and the Legislature as input to the appropriation process.
