Connecticut State Data Plan
establish management and data analysis standards across executive branch agencies;
include specific, achievable goals within the two years following the 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 executive branch agencies;
provide a timeline for the 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.
The plan is required to be updated every two years.
The underlying Public Act requires that information technology actions and initiatives of executive branch agencies must be consistent with the plan. Further, the Chief Data Officer is required to establish procedures for each agency to report on its progress toward achieving the goals articulated in the plan.
The plan is organized around Principles which represent a framework under which state agencies should organize and operate; Focal Points which represent areas where agencies should emphasize the sharing, integration, and availability of data; and Goals which represent the desired outcomes of plan implementation.
The plan was developed by the state Chief Data Officer.
