Moran Unveils "Efficient Virginia" Plan
Former delegate Brian Moran unveiled a three-part plan to promote government innovation and reform, which he said will help Virginia maintain its ranking as the best managed state.
Moran's proposal calls for more efficiency in government, reforms to the budgeting and procurement process and additional steps to promote technology while curbing wasteful spending. For example, Moran wants all state government travel to be booked online.
"I will bring my experience in state government, as a small business owner and my commitment to the taxpayers to make sure we remain the best managed to state in America," Moran said.
To promote innovation, Moran want to create a new task force to identify possible reforms in state government. Moran is also vowing to continue efforts to streamline the procurement process, and he promises "results-orientated budgeting."
Moran said he will be building off the strategies implemented by former Gov. Mark R. Warner and Gov. Timothy M. Kaine, both Democrats.
Moran also wants to open up the state's waste, fraud and abuse hotline to all residents.
Currently, Moran said, only state employees can use it to report possible savings. Moran also wants a performance audit of state government.
