62 OK Stat § 62-35.5 (2014) What's This?

A. 1. All state agencies shall provide to the Chief Information Officer a list of information technology assets of the agency which are integral to agency-specific applications or functions and a list of information technology positions which are directly associated with the assets. The agency shall further provide the reference to federal or state statutory or constitutional provisions which require it to perform the applications or functions.

2. If the Chief Information Officer disputes the identification of assets or positions provided by a state agency as being integral to agency-specific applications or functions, the Director of the Office of Management and Enterprise Services shall make the final determination.

B. Not later than December 1 of each year, the Chief Information Officer shall modify the assessment required by subsection D of Section 34.11.1 of this title to include identification of:

1. All information technology assets of all state agencies, which are not integral to agency-specific applications or functions, and the transfer of which to the Information Services Division of the Office of Management and Enterprise Services and the Chief Information Officer would result in a cost savings to the taxpayers of this state or improved efficiency of state government operations, including all furniture, equipment, vehicles, supplies, records, current and future liabilities, fund balances, encumbrances, obligations, and indebtedness associated with the information technology assets;

2. All information technology positions associated with the information technology assets identified pursuant to paragraph 1 of this subsection. The assessment shall identify the amount of compensation and related liabilities for accrued sick leave, annual leave, holidays, unemployment benefits, and workers' compensation benefits for the positions;

3. The amount of savings to the taxpayers of this state resulting from the provisions of the Information Technology Consolidation and Coordination Act; and

4. Any changes in law required or any changes to the amount of state appropriations or other state funds associated with the transfer of the information technology assets or positions.

C. The information technology assets and positions of each appropriated state agency identified pursuant to this section shall be transferred as part of the consolidation of information technology operations of the state agency to the Information Services Division of the Office of Management and Enterprise Services when determined by the Information Services Division. The costs of operation, maintenance, licensing and service of the information technology assets shall remain the responsibility of the state agency from which the assets are transferred until the state agency information technology operations are consolidated in the Information Services Division, unless otherwise agreed to by the state agency and the Information Services Division. Appropriate conveyances and other documents shall be executed to effectuate the transfer of the information technology assets and positions to the Information Services Division of the Office of Management and Enterprise Services.

D. The Chief Information Officer shall recommend changes to the Director of the Office of Management and Enterprise Services and the Governor for inclusion in the next executive budget to be submitted to the Legislature.

E. The Information Services Division shall provide shared services to each state agency and shall bill agencies for those shared services at an estimated cost to provide the services. The estimated cost shall include the full cost of the services, including materials, depreciation related to capital costs, labor, and administrative expenses of the Information Services Division of the Office of Management and Enterprise Services in connection with the operation of the data center and Information Services Division operations and shall include expenses associated with acquiring, installing, and operating information technology and telecommunications infrastructure, hardware and software for use by state agencies. The Information Services Division shall publish a schedule of costs for each available shared service and shall enter into an agreement with each state agency for the shared services that will be provided to the agency. The aggregated cost of shared services to be provided to each state agency shall be budgeted annually as a separate line item through each state agency. State agencies shall process request for payments as provided for under the agreement entered into with the Information Services Division in a timely manner. If payments are deemed to be delinquent for shared services provided to a state agency, the Information Services Division may request the Division of Central Accounting and Reporting of the Office of Management and Enterprise Services to create vouchers and process payments to the Information Services Division against the funds of the delinquent state agency. If the state agency for which shared services were provided disputes the provision of shared services in accordance with its agreement with the Information Services Division, no voucher shall be processed against the funds of the delinquent agency until the dispute over services has been resolved, at which point a voucher may be processed in accordance with the terms of the dispute resolution.

F. The Information Services Division of the Office of Management and Enterprise Services shall succeed to any contractual rights, easement rights, lease rights, and other similar rights and responsibilities related to the information technology assets that are transferred as provided for in this section and incurred by an appropriated state agency.
