Identifier: 060-06-007

Scope and Contents

This series consists of bound, original and copied material related to requests from state agencies for the Electronic Data Processing Review Committee to approve the purchase, lease, and use of electronic data processing equipment. In addition there are requests for technical services, including but not limited to: equipment installations and maintenance, and the sharing of time, information, equipment, and services among state and federal government entitites. Generally the records are in memo and correspondence form, however these records also include, but are not limited to the following: agendas and minutes of EDP review comnittee meetings kept after August, 1975; procurement requests submitted by state agencies to the EDP committee for consideration and approval; documents related to lease agreements, purchase order requisitions, approved contracts, and proposals the committee approved, disapproved, or recommended be held for additional study; affidavits signed by vendors attesting to the independence of their competitive bids; computer systems schematic drawings, surveys, and performance reviews; and hardware and software sales promotion materials. Much of the information in these records is highly technical and probably will require some knowledge of electronic data principles, systems, and jargon. The EDP Review Committee plans and coordinates the acquisition of electronic data processing equipment and services for the state government. The Comnittee is authorized to approve or disapprove procurement requests. Also, it resolves agency conflicts about data processing matters, and handles conflicts which are not satisfactorily settled between an agency and the Department of Administrative Services. The Committee submits an annual report to the Governor with recommendations, and it also submits proposals for legislation that pertain to its responsibilities.
