State of Washington Video Telecommunications Strategic Plan.
Washington State Dept. of Information Services, Olympia. Policy and Regulation Div.
This plan brings common purpose and effective statewide coordination to video telecommunications activities in Washington State. The Department of Information Services (DIS) is designated the lead agency in the statewide coordination of video telecommunications through its enabling legislation. The plan outlines a structure to link and measure agency planning with the statewide vision for video telecommunications. The mission is to implement a successfully shared statewide video telecommunications system by 1997 to integrate multiple resources to serve state government and the public. Strategies that will be used are divided into the major components of planning and funding, program development, human resources, and technical infrastructure. Eight appendixes describe each strategy and its supporting activities as follows: (1) planning and funding; (2) program development; (3) human resources; (4) technical infrastructure; (5) legislative intent; (6) budget proviso; (7) state video telecommunications demonstration projects, downlink networks, and systems; and (8) glossary of terms.
