In accordance with OPPAGA’s recommendations, the Department of Education has developed a strategic plan to help ensure that the Florida Information Resource Network (FIRN2) will meet the information technology needs of the state’s public education entities. As we recommended, the Legislature directed the department to assess Florida’s public education technology needs and evaluate options for addressing those needs. The department recommended continuing FIRN2 services. The Department of Management Services has awarded a three-year contract for these services with a new provider.
