LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST
AB 1955, Assembly Member Wilk. State contracts: information technology goods and services: cybersecurity insurance.
Existing law authorizes the Department of General Services and the Department of Technology to adopt rules and regulations as are necessary to govern the acquisition and disposal of information technology goods and services. Existing law requires contract awards for all large-scale systems integration projects to be based on the proposal that provides the most value-effective solutions to the state’s requirements, as specified, and requires evaluation criteria for the acquisition of information technology goods and services, including systems integration, to provide for the selection of a contractor on an objective basis not limited to cost alone.
This bill would require a state agency procuring information technology goods or services to give a preference to vendors that carry cybersecurity insurance.
Vote Required: majority Appropriation: no Fiscal Committee: yes Local Program: no
