Connecticut State Data Plan

The mission of the CT State Data Plan is to connect the people and processes involved with data to promote communication between, and appropriate integration of, formerly siloed data, teams, and systems. The Plan was created to ensure that data are treated as State assets and managed consistently and appropriately across state government. This plan is intended to guide future information technology actions and initiatives, which must be consistent with the Plan going forward.

 

The Connecticut Data Analysis and Technology Advisory Board will hold a public hearing on the draft 2021 - 2022 State Data Plan on Thursday, November 19 at 1 PM ET. Details on registering to submit public comment are posted here.

 

What is the State Data Plan?

The State Data Plan is a framework for the state’s executive branch agencies to engage in a consistent approach to data stewardship, use, and access. It is not just an open data plan, but one that is applicable to all data in the custody and control of executive branch agencies.

Developed in accordance with Section 4-67p of the Connecticut General Statutes, the Plan must:

  • Establish data management & analysis standards,
  • Include specific achievable goals,
  • Make recommendations to enhance standardization & integration of data systems & data management practices,
  • Review legal issues and concerns related to data sharing, and
  • Set goals for improving the open data repository.

Why a State Data Plan?

  • To ensure that data are treated as State assets and managed consistently and appropriately across state government.
  • To create efficiencies and process improvements that will ultimately reduce the amount of overhead necessary to leverage agency data assets.
  • To guide future information technology actions and initiatives, which must be consistent with the Plan going forward.
