The Central Procurement Services (CPS), Department of Technology, Management, and Budget, provides State agencies with the processes, tools, and techniques to procure IT products and services on time, of good quality, and at a reasonable price. CPS purchases and contracts for all IT hardware and software needed by State agencies for which the Legislature has not otherwise expressly provided. There were 348 IT contracts with 254 vendors active between October 1, 2017 and June 30, 2020. IT contracts are used for various items and services such as software development, project management, computer hardware, maintenance/support, and software licensing. The total original value of the 348 contracts was approximately $2.72 billion. The total value of the contracts after options, changes, and extensions totaled $6.09 billion, an increase of $3.37 billion from the original value. Contract changes are approved by the agency and the contractor. If the change is significant, it may also require approval from the State Administrative Board.
