An Enterprise System does not include any of the following:
  • Information Technology security systems, including firewalls and other cybersecurity systems.
  • Physical access control systems, employee identification management systems, video monitoring and other physical control systems.
  • Infrastructure and mechanical control systems, including those that control or manage street lights, electrical, natural gas or water sewer functions.
  • Systems related to 911 dispatch and operation or emergency services.
  • Systems that would be restricted from disclosure by Section 6254.19.
  • The specific records that the information technology system collects, stores, exchanges or analyzes.


  1. Create a catalog of enterprise systems, containing:
    • Current system vendor
    • Current system product
    • System’s Purpose
    • A description of categories or types of data
    • The department that is the prime custodian of the data
    • The frequency that system data is collected
    • The frequency that system data is updated
  2. To make the catalog publicly available upon request
