Article 15A, Section 3, Paragraph 23B of the Legislative Acts of 1969, as
amended, places primary responsibility in the Department of Budget and Fiscal
Planning in consultation with the State Comptroller, for planning and control of
the State automatic data processing (ADP) function. To provide the requisite
framework for achieving and maintaining a viable and efficient ADP capability,
the ADP policies herein described will be immediately implemented.
A. The State will manage and develop its ADP resources according to a master
plan and implementation schedule, periodically updated to reflect future
B. Mechanization of any systems will be limited to those which can be
measured in terms of savings of manpower, funds, time, or which contribute

the Department of Budget and Fiscal Planning.
C. All State ADP personnel except the State Central ADP Staff will report
functionally and administratively to ADP Directors responsible for the several
Data Processing Service Centers defined by the Department of Budget and Fiscal
Planning. Departments not having ADP resources will maintain ADP liaison with
the appropriate Data Processing Service Center.
D. The ADP resources of the State will be identified in the budget as separate
cost centers corresponding to the Data Processing Service Centers.
E. Acquisition of new equipment, augmentation of existing equipment, or
disposal of equipment no longer required must have prior approval of the
Department of Budget and Fiscal Planning.

equipment by another agency. Where feasible, an agency will make machine time
available on a regular recurring basis to meet the requirements of the agency not
having equipment. Centralization of data processing services will be fully exploited
where cost reductions without adverse effect can be achieved.
G. All changes effected by any department or agency pertaining to data
processing systems shall first be reviewed and approved by the Department of
Budget and Fiscal Planning.

accomplished by and through the Department of Budget and Fiscal Planning.

resources will be accomplished by the State Central ADP Staff in conjunction with

executive guidance in the formulation and review of plans and policies for the
development, acquisition and utilization of State ADP resources. Furthermore, the
