Welcome SACNet Skills Bank Proof of Concept (PoC) Beta Testers Cohort 2021!

  • What is SACNet:
    SACNet is a human-centered innovation testbed that can enable the State of California to develop and test processes and tools consistent with Governor Newsom’s Innovation Procurement Sprint for California (EO N-04-19). This Executive Order (EO) directs agencies and departments to transparently share their business needs in partnership with private industry to offer solutions. SACNet was first developed by Cal-IPGCA Cohort 2019. Cal-IPGCA Cohort 2021 is continuing the development of SACNet as an integral component of this Beta Test. SACNet's aim is to reduce redundancy of effort and thereby enhance cross-departmental collaboration and the efficiency and performance outcome for all. The interactions among the SACNet and the Moonshot project teams as well as State of California leadership creates a continuous flow from independent activities towards collective goals, objectives, and outcomes.

  • Skills Bank 2021:
    As part of this goal, SACNet is building a technological infrastructure (platform) that promotes continuous collaboration between employees, departments, and agencies. We see the Skills Bank as providing the "hybrid fuel" connecting the people and processes that get work done. It is designed to encourage state employees to take ownership of their professional growth and manifest inter-agency collaboration to respond to real needs in real-time.
