    Recodifies GS 143B-426.38A as GS 147-33.77A. Deletes all provisions in subsection (a) of previous GS 143B-426.38A, regarding state data sharing requirements, and replaces it with a new subsection (a) in new GS 147-33.77A, with definitions for the following terms as they apply in this section, on the provisions of the Government Data Analytics Center (GDAC): (1) business intelligence, (2) data analytics, and (3) enterprise-level data analytics.

    Amends GS 147-33.77A(b) to clarify that the GDAC is established in the Office of Technology Information Services [was, established in the Office of the State Chief Information Officer (State CIO)]. Identifies that the purpose of the GDAC is to utilize public-private partnerships as part of a statewide data integration and data-sharing initiative to generate greater efficiency and improved service delivery by state agencies, departments, and institutions.

    Clarifies that the GDAC is to advise and assist the State CIO in managing this initiative. Identifies the powers and duties of the State CIO that are to be carried out via the GDAC. Expands those powers and duties to include (1) utilizing a common approach to establish standards for business intelligence initiatives for all state agencies and to prevent developing projects that do not meet established standards and (2) the creation of efficiencies in state government by ensuring that state agencies use the GDAC for agency business intelligence requirements.

    Provides that the statewide data integration and data-sharing initiative is to include all state agencies, departments, and institutions, including the University of North Carolina, as specified in this act, which includes the designation of advisees to this initiative by the Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court and the Legislative Services Commission.

    Directs the State CIO, with assistance from the Office of State Budget and Management (OSBM), to identify potential funding sources for expansion or development of projects. Sets parameters that prohibit initiating, expanding, or extending any GDAC project without the specific approval of the General Assembly or prior consultation with the Joint Legislative Commission on Governmental Operations and a report to the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on Information Technology, unless the project can be implemented within the funds appropriated for GDAC projects. Deletes all of the requirements regarding the phases of the initiative from the prior statute, GS 143B-426.38A, recodified in this act as GS 147-33.77A.

    Delineates the general duties of all state agencies regarding data sharing and includes specific requirements regarding the state agencies with specified responsibilities relating to workers’ compensation claims for the purpose of preventing and detecting fraud.

    Includes provisions on privacy and confidentiality of information with respect to access to certain types of information under the initiative and specifies limitations that apply to the release of information compiled and collected under the initiative.

    Directs the Office of Information Technology Services (was, the Office of the State CIO), with support of the OSBM, to identify and make all efforts to secure any matching funds or other resources to assist in funding the GDAC (was, this initiative). Makes conforming changes to the reporting requirements to reflect the organizational changes in deleting the implementation of the initiative in phases. Directs the State CIO to report to the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on Information Technology on projects that are failing to achieve projected savings. Requires the report to include a proposed corrective action plan for the project.

    Makes additional organizational changes, deleting subsections (f), (g), and (h) of GS 143B-426.38A, which is recodified in this act as GS 147-33.77A, and incorporating the subject areas of those subsections into GS 147-33.77A.

    Makes conforming changes to GS 20-7(b2)(6), GS 20-43(a), and GS 105-259(b)(45). Directs the Revisor of Statutes to substitute statute number GS 147-33.77A for statute number GS 143B-426.38A wherever it appears in the General Statutes.
