In an effort to promote innovation and creative problem solving as the state works to balance its budget and overhaul its technology infrastructure, the Technology Agency is reaching out to its vendor partners for innovative ideas and solutions.  On April 27, 2011, the agency will host an Open House to provide the vendor community an opportunity to participate in 15 minute pitch meetings with key staff from the California Technology Agency and other state agencies.

Vendors should be prepared to present opportunities to save costs or resolve problems that will help California’s state government operate more efficiently.  These meetings are not an opportunity to discuss ongoing procurements or confidential intellectual property requiring the state to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement.  Open House timeslots will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis to those who register online here.   For any questions, please Robert Schmidt at (916) 403-9628 or robert.schmidt@state.ca.gov.
