Catalog of Enterprise System

Pursuant to SB 272 and CA Government Code 6270.5

An "enterprise system" is a software application or computer system that collects, stores, exchanges and analyzes information that the agency uses that is both of the following: 

  • A multi-departmental system or a system that contains information collected about the public.
  • A system that serves as an original source of data within an agency.

SB 272 requires us to do the following:

  1. Create a catalog of enterprise systems, containing:
    • Current system vendor
    • Current system product
    • System’s purpose
    • A description of categories or types of data
    • The department that is the prime custodian of the data
    • The frequency that system data is collected
    • The frequency that system data is updated
  2. To make the catalog publicly available upon request.
  3. To post the catalog in a prominent location on the agency’s website.

Exceptions include:

If the public interest served by not disclosing the information described clearly outweighs the public interest served by disclosure, the local agency may instead provide a system name, brief title or identifier of the system.
