Trouble continues for Virginia's IT agency
An audit has found that Virginia state agencies continued to struggle with their computer services. The cost savings and efficiencies that were the goal of consolidating and privatizing state computer services have failed to materialize.
The Post's Rosalind Helderman reports on the Virginia Politics' blog that that problems are so bad that the Virginia Department of Transportation lost computer functions during a major storm in November, preventing the agency from monitoring conditions on roads and bridges. Agency leaders said they once had backups for such functions but no longer do. The state experienced 63 IT problems in November so severe that they caused a complete work stoppage affecting an entire state agency.
