EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:
The Department of Enterprise Technology Services (ETS) is committed to meet expectations established in W.S. 9-2-2019 and 9-2-2901 through 9-2-2907. We began by working with the Executive Branch Agency Directors to identify the appropriate approach to consolidate State Information Technology (IT) employees. Parallel to this initiative, teams of new and existing employees collaborated to formalize the State IT Consolidation process.

We strive to ensure transparency throughout the process.
