The state department endowed with oversight of insurance regulations, statute enforcement and consumer protection made 36 purchases of IT services from Jan. 1-June 30 and spent nearly $2 million on the top five.

The California Department of Insurance (CDI) spent exactly $1,784,601.01 on its five most expensive such purchases, including two with the same vendor. Here, with rounding, is what that money paid for, based on data in the State Contracting and Procurement Registration System:

  • $475,000 to Trinity Technology Group for a consultant to provide CDI with “custom application development services” to support programming staff on “various projects and applications.” CDI made the purchase June 9.
  • $364,000 to General Networks Corp. to “add funds for OpenText eDocs” document management services. CDI made the purchase May 11.
  • $498,000 to Gartner for “Gartner for IT Executives.” This is a roughly one-year contract from March 3-March 31, 2023.
  • $335,000 to Cloud Services Integrators for developing an “Application Express (APEX) ‘to-be’ environment,” using APEX for business requirements – and mentoring technical staffers on the product’s use. CDI made the purchase April 21.
  • $250,000 to Cloud Services Integrators for “custom application development/support services” on its Tax Phase II Project. This is a nearly two-year contract from June 14-May 31, 2024.
