The Department of Information Resources (DIR) provides statewide leadership and oversight for management of government information and communications technology.
The agency was created in 1989 when the Texas Legislature enacted Chapter 2054, Texas Government Code—the Information Resources Management Act. Since that time, the scope of responsibilities increased within Chapter 2054 with the addition of subchapters F, I, J, and K, which address the state electronic Internet portal, and subchapter L that addresses the consolidation of data center services.
Two additional sections of the Texas Government Code (TGC) address security requirements (TGC Chapter 2059) and communications technology services (TGC Chapter 2170).
DIR has served in a leadership role to facilitate the state’s economic competitiveness through its ability to deliver quality information resources commodities and services at the lowest prices and best value for state and local government as well as the K–12 public and higher education systems.
