2017 fiscal year activities
During the 2015–17 biennium, our focus will be in six areas. These areas — called work streams — include planning for implementing systems and readiness preparation activities. Each work stream will help prepare for an integrated approach to business processes and supporting systems. The ultimate goal is providing accurate, usable data for decision makers in all the statewide enterprise areas.
