Any person who is designated by the head of a state agency
as the information resources manager of that state agency must be
a senior official of the state agency. Joint information resources
managers must meet this requirement for one of the state agencies
or institutions of higher education that they represent. State agency
heads are encouraged, but not required, to make designations on the
basis of qualification guidelines provided by the department.
(1) Each designated state agency information resources
manager shall complete continuing education requirements provided
by the department and approved by the board of the department. The
head of each agency is responsible for ensuring their appointee remains
qualified to serve as information resources manager.
(2) The department will provide continuing education
programs, including educational materials and seminars, to assure
that state agency information resources managers remain current in
the field of information resources management.
