OTS Standards

The establishment and governance of enterprise technical standards assists agencies by laying the foundation for: 

  • long-term systems planning and budgeting
  • cost-effective acquisition of technology products through collective bargaining power and enterprise agreements
  • transparent connectivity and interoperability across systems
  • the sharing of resources, both technical and personnel
  • improved management by limiting alternatives
  • consistent quality of information for decision making

Standards help state agencies develop technically compatible systems using a consistent approach and promote migration to enterprise solutions with known complexity and support. Learn about the Policy and Standard Numbering System
