​Standards, Guidelines, Specifications and Templates

The DEP Information Technology (IT) Standards Library contains IT standards, guidelines, technical environment specifications and templates in use at DEP.   

  • Standards (STD): a prescribed procedure, approach, solution, methodology, product or protocol that must be followed. DEP IT standards are applicable agency-wide and may address application development and implementation, project management, operations and systems or security standards.  All DEP IT standards are implemented under the umbrella of DEP Directives 370 and 390.   
  • Guidance Documents (GDE): reference and support material to help users apply or meet a standard.  While guidance documents are not required to be followed, doing so can help insure that the standard requirements are met for a specific standard subject-area.
  • Technical Environment Specifications (SPC):  documented details about the DEP computing environment. A technical environment specification may be a diagram, schematic or textual description of some aspect of the DEP computing environment. 
  • Templates (TMP):  provided to enable users to carry-out some aspect of a standard.
