Cost Cutting Caucus to examine the Enterprise Applications Program

The Cost Cutting Caucus will be having its regular meeting this Thursday, February 2 in the Fifth Floor West Conference Room (General Assembly Building) from 4:00 to 5:00 pm.

This week we will be joined by Tim Bass, Deputy Secretary of Technology and the Enterprise Applications Program Director. His presentation will include an overview of Human Resource Management, Financial Management, Accounting, Budgeting, and Procurement procedures and applications in Virginia Government.

As a reminder, the Cost Cutting Caucus is a non-partisan, bicameral group that works to find cost savings in state government, and make government more efficient, transparent, accountable and competitive. All are welcome to attend!

More details on the Enterprise Applications Program to be posted later today.

  • I think this will be interesting. I wish I could make it. The way in which some finance and budget offices use technology is usually not pretty. I've seen cases where the budget office will work night and day trying to get a budget document ready to print. Most of the time is spent doing tedious cut/copy/paste and not the real work of being budget analysts.

  • A post I made on Commonwealth Conservative about this blog was not clearly written, so please note my clarification in the comments on this link:
