The Chief Information Office (CIO) provides vision and strategic direction for the effective use of information technology (IT) to achieve business objectives and improve the delivery of services throughout the County of Los Angeles. Within the CIO, the Information Security Office establishes and publishes countywide information security policies and standards to mitigate risks to computer assets and data.
CIO management staff support County departments by providing business and technical analysis of IT projects and initiatives, request-for-proposals and contracts. The CIO's oversight responsibilities facilitate departments' alignment with the County's Strategic Plan and compliance with technology standards. To accomplish this objective, the CIO coordinates the departmental Business Automation Planning process, and publishes the annual Integrated Business Automation Plan to report on major strategies and the tactical application of technology in the County.
Consolidated Computer Purchase Program (CCPP) - The CCPP establishes a countywide acquisition process for all PC device assets. This program enables the County to aggregate department PC purchases by standardizing on a limited number of PC technical configurations based on countywide requirements, and maximizing savings through large volume purchasing to obtain the lowest device cost. Pricing for these configurations are obtained via competitive solicitations conducted semi-annually.
