One Washington — Governance
Governance exists to increase transparency and align decision making for planning, policy and operations in order to meet business objectives, ascertain that risks are managed appropriately, and verify that resources are being used responsibly and strategically.
The One Washington program touches all corners of Washington state government. Accordingly, the program governance structure will include a diverse set of representatives from a wide range of stakeholder groups from both IT and business functions impacted by the decisions of the program.
Over the course of time, the One Washington program will maintain a flexible governance process that will allow right-time consultation with subject matter expertise, stakeholders and industry experts, and the formation of additional formal or informal groups in a fashion that improves the decision-making process and the outcomes for the program overall.
