Connecticut State Data Plan
The State Data Plan is not just an open data plan but applicable to all data in the custody and control of state agencies. The plan is required to be developed in accordance with Public Act 18-175 . Specifically the Act requires that the state data plan shall:
- establish management and data analysis standards across all executive branch agencies,
- include specific, achievable goals within the two years following adoption of such plan, as well as longer term goals,
- make recommendations to enhance standardization and integration of data systems and data management practices across all executive branch agencies,
- provide a timeline for a review of any state or federal legal concerns or other obstacles to the internal sharing of data among agencies, including security and privacy concerns, and
- set goals for improving the open data repository.
An initial draft of the plan is due on or before November 1, 2018 with a final plan due December 31, 2018. The plan is required to be updated every two years thereafter.
Once final, information technology actions of affected state agencies are required to be consistent with the plan. Further, the Chief Data Officer is required to establish procedures for each affected agency to reports on the agency’s progress toward achieving the goals articulated in the plan.
Feedback on the Phase 3 Draft is welcome and will be accepted until November 15, 2018. Additionally, in accordance with Public Act 18-175 the Connecticut Data Analysis Technology Advisory Board (DATA Board) will hold a public hearing at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford at 10:oo AM on November 15th. This will be the last opportunity for the public to provide comments on the plan before it is finalized.
