  1. The Information Technology Advisory Council (ITAC) is established as an advisory council, within the meaning of § 2.2-2100, in the executive branch of state government. The ITAC shall be responsible for advising the Chief Information Officer (CIO) and the Secretary of Technology on the planning, budgeting, acquiring, using, disposing, managing, and administering of information technology in the Commonwealth.

The ITAC shall consist of not more than 14 members as follows: (i) one representative from an agency under each of the Governor's Secretaries, as set out in Chapter 2 (§ 2.2-200et seq.), to be appointed by the Governor and serve with voting privileges; (ii) the Secretary of Technology and the CIO who shall serve ex officio with voting privileges; and (iii) at the Governor's discretion, not more than two nonlegislative citizen members to be appointed by the Governor and serve with voting privileges.

    Nonlegislative citizen members shall be appointed for terms of four years. Appointments to fill vacancies, other than by expiration of a term, shall be for the unexpired terms.
