Procurements, regardless of the procurement method chosen by the agency, associated with a major information resources project are subject to QAT oversight. “Major information resources project” means:
- any information resources technology project identified in a state agency's biennial operating plan whose development costs exceed $5 million and that:
requires one year or longer to reach operations status;
involves more than one state agency; or
substantially alters work methods of state agency personnel or the delivery of services to clients;
any information resources technology project designated by the legislature in the General Appropriations Act as a major information resources project; and
any information resources technology project of a state agency designated for additional monitoring under Section 2261.258(a) (1) of the Texas Government Code if the development costs for the project exceed $5 million.
An agency is required to notify QAT when it advertises any solicitation of a major information resources project regardless of the solicitation method (e.g., RFP, IFB, RFO). This notification is required to include the requisition number for each solicitation advertised.
Additional information regarding the steps involved in initiating, monitoring, completing, and submitting reports and other deliverables to the QAT for a major information resources project are available below.
