Chapter 30 - High Risk IT Solicitations and Contracts

30.1 High Risk Contracts, Defined

30.1.3 Major IT Projects - definition of "High Risk" and approval by CIO

§ 2.2-2006 of the Code of Virginia defines a "major IT project" as any Commonwealth information technology project that has a total estimated cost of more than $1 million or that has been designated a major information technology project by the CIO.

High risk solicitations and contracts are also considered major IT projects, and therefore, must be approved by the CIO prior to the issuance of the high risk solicitation or award of the high risk contract. In order for VITA SCM to recommend approval to CIO, an agency seeking to conduct a high risk procurement must fully meet all requirements laid out in § 2.2-4303.01.
