Oklahoma Office of State Finance, Information Technology & Telecommunications Plan Reporting Online User Manual

Back to top ↑Overview

Per House Bill 2935, passed in the 2006 legislative session, each agency of the executive branch is required to provide an annual Information Technology and Telecommunication plan to the Office of State Finance no later than July 1 of each year.

The Information Technology and Telecommunications plan is a browser based application utilizing a fixed template to produce a one-year operating plan.

The Information Technology and Telecommunications Plan Reporting application is located at:
http://www.ok.gov/osf/itt_reporting

Security features in the application provide access for authorized agency representatives only.

Agency representatives as designated by each agency authorize one agency representative to access the template and enter Information Technology plan data; and one agency representative to access the template and enter Telecommunication plan data. These agency representatives may be the same person. Agency representatives have access to their agency's information only.

Agencies and divisions of agencies are required to enter project numbers, project names and associated project costs into pre-determined categories.

Please be certain to include your projects in your plan for each fiscal year. For instance, if a project begins in FY-12 your plan (within the projects section of the application) would have the anticipated expenditures for FY-12. Then in FY-13, assuming there is an optional renewal, the plan (within projects) would include the cost for this fiscal year. In the past there has been some confusion about where the project optional renewals would be located, either in the projects or operations budget. For consistency, please place this in the projects section.

When logging in as an Agency representative or Administrator, a box will be presented for Accessibility Compliance Officer. The default will be the Agency Director. This should be updated and made current.

Agency representatives do not have authority to change the template or categories.

Agencies can print their plan upon completion. The report will detail the planned cost for each category of a project, the total planned cost for the project, and the total planned cost for the division and agency.

Agencies should print current fiscal year report prior to end of reporting period. All old data will be Archived at the start of each new Fiscal Year. If reports are required for previous years, please Notify the OSF Help Desk Via Email (helpdesk@osf.ok.gov) requesting specific year requested.

Ensure all Operational and Project funding is entered for the Agency as OSF tracks both spend Requests.

Updates to the plan can be made as required throughout the year.

Notify the OSF Help Desk via email (helpdesk@osf.ok.gov) upon completion of the initial Information Technology or Telecommunications plan.

Notify the OSF Help Desk via email (helpdesk@osf.ok.gov) when agency representatives change with regard to entering plan data.

Notify the OSF Help Desk via email (helpdesk@osf.ok.gov) when Information Technology or Telecommunications plan updates are performed during the year.

The Information Technology and Telecommunication annual plan is independent of, and does not change the due dates for the budget, hardware inventory, software inventory and telecommunication inventory. The OSF Help Desk is available to answer questions that may not be covered in the training manual.

The OSF Help desk can be reached at 405-521-2444 or email (helpdesk@www.ok.gov).
