Problems with state IT projects are multiplying like rabbits, and doubts are growing that Democrats are up to task of fixing them.
In his latest column, Dan Walters runs down the list of failing state tech projects, from the accounting system that’s put our credit rating at risk to the DMV computers that crash for hours at a time.
While Democrats have made half-hearted efforts at reform, they haven’t delivered results.
Walters doubts they ever will, saying “We’ve heard promises of fresh starts on IT implementation before, and they’ve all fallen short of actually fixing the problem.”
Californians deserve a government that gets things done. Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron (Escondido) has introduced a bill to harness the expertise of the private sector to modernize state government and improve customer service.
It’s clear the business-as-usual approach isn’t working. Will Democrats join the Republican efforts to shake things up and demand results?
