Description
The records of the Intergovernmental Board on Electronic Data Processing consist of eleven cubic feet of textual and audiovisual records spanning the period from 1967-1979. The records document the activities of the Board, which included establishing policies to guide the development and use of electronic data processing technology in state government, reviewing legislation pertaining to the privacy and security of information systems, and providing consulting services to facilitate the adoption of standard electronic data processing policies and procedures.
Background
The State of California purchased its first piece of data processing equipment in 1956. Over a decade later, Governor Ronald Reagan created the first body to oversee the development of electronic data processing technology in state government. Executive Order R6-67 set up the State Automatic Data Processing Policy Committee to advise the Governor on long-range management services plans, programs and policies regarding electronic data processing. The following year, Chapter 1327, Statutes of 1968 formally established the Intergovernmental Board on Electronic Data Processing, replacing the State Automatic Data Processing Policy Committee. The Board initially consisted of twelve members and alternates appointed by the Governor, representing state agencies, county governments, city governments, and school districts.
