5. Data Leadership & Governance


The Utah State Data Coordinator is the architect and content manager for the state’s open data portal and Spending.Utah.gov. During 2020, the State’s Chief Data Officer in the Governor’s Office of Planning and Budget launched the Blueprint Solution, an interoperability initiative that exchanges service-level data between case managers who have clients in common, which serves nearly 500 clients shared across five state social services programs, including correctional, child and family services, and employment-seeking clients.

Additionally, a 2021 Utah law created the Government Operations Privacy Officer, the State Privacy Officer, and the Personal Privacy Oversight Commission to oversee and govern state data sharing, privacy, security, and technology across the state.
