State Data Center Operations
Funding is provided to cover the cost of the Consolidated Technology Services' (WaTech) operation of the state data center. Migration to the state data center has been significantly slower than anticipated when the building was constructed and revenues from current agency customers do not cover the cost of operations.
Funding is provided to develop an assessment of current statewide cloud readiness and develop a cloud migration strategy.
Computer Emergency Readiness Team
Funding is provided for the Computer Emergency Readiness Team (CERT) to meet ongoing demand and resolve a workload backlog concerning independent third party cybersecurity risk assessments of state agency systems and applications to identify vulnerabilities, opportunities for system hardening, and other issues. CERT is the state's central cyber defense, incident response, and security operations center.
Enterprise Apps Transfer Backfill
Funding is provided to cover the Consolidated Technology Services' (WaTech) budget gaps incurred due to the transfer of funding from the enterprise service fee from WaTech to the Office of Financial Management (OFM). This will give the agency time to evaluate rate adjustments necessary to cover overhead and other costs.
SAW - IBM Passport License Increase
Funding is provided in the security gateway allocation to cover increased costs of IBM passport licenses for the Secure Access Washington (SAW) program.
Small Agency IT Services
Funding is provided through a new allocation for the creation of a service tailored to meet the IT needs of small agencies. Services include full service desktop support, server assistance, security, and consultation. The initial roll-out assumes a client base of 14 small agencies.
Funding is provided, in addition to the refinancing of the 1500 Jefferson Building, to align the cost per square foot amount paid by tenants to the Helen Sommers Building.
Logging and Monitoring
Funding is provided through the network allocation for expansion of the current logging and monitoring service to improve network, system, application, and security log visibility. It will also enable additional report and alert capabilities for agencies, Consolidated Technology Services (WaTech), and the Office of Cyber Security on abnormal traffic detection in near real-time.
Encrypted State Network Threats
Funding is provided to the Office of Cyber Security to procure and install an appliance to decrypt network traffic to identify and evaluate payloads for malicious activity and threats before they can cause harm to state IT assets and/or extract confidential and personal information.
OCIO State IT Project Oversight
Funding is provided for the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) to align procurement oversight capabilities of major IT projects to existing workload, improve technical/architecture review, and address gaps in statutory functions and state policy. Recent trends indicate a pattern of larger, more complex projects that require more oversight time than the agency is resourced to support.
Funding is provided through the security gateway allocation for Secure Access Washington (SAW) to improve gateway capabilities (including mobile), make improvements to multi-factor authentication user friendliness, and achieve cost avoidance by shifting to a fixed cost licensing fee structure from the existing variable model. This service provides a secure connection for citizens to electronically access vital services from many state agencies.
Vulnerability Assessment Program
Funding is provided for Consolidated Technology Services (WaTech) to expand vulnerability assessment services and improve network analysis to continually identify security breaches, issues, and misconfigured/unpatched devices through the use of a hardware and software scanning platform service. This service is an important cybersecurity complement to the Computer Emergency Readiness Team (CERT).

Non-Rep General Wage Increase

It is sufficient for a general wage increase of 3 percent, effective July 1, 2019, and a general wage increase of 3 percent, effective July 1, 2020. This item includes both general government and higher education workers.
Non-Rep Targeted Pay Increases
