Re: “New State Agency's Domain: Fixing Vermont's Tech Problems

It is too bad that the reporting is incomplete. While some of the failed systems' developments had large price tags, there is a failure to acknowledge that thousands of those dollars were recovered by some of the organizations, for example the Judiciary and the DMV. Sometimes the right contract can mitigate the losses. Also, it should be noted that the IT folks now reporting to Mr. Quinn are Executive Branch employees. The Judiciary has a very experienced IT professional, Jeff Loewer, heading its RIS division. He came to the Judiciary with a wealth of experience in systems development. He has established a process that has thus far received high marks from the independent review established by the Legislature.

Re: “New State Agency's Domain: Fixing Vermont's Tech Problems

Recently, a group made up of 82% females with technical and legal domain expertise, took, in less than eleven months, a State run (not DII) failed system to successful, productive go-live use in less than 11 months. This system - the Supreme Court Docket System - had complex rules and workflows plus the habits and routines of a 32 - year old existing system to compete with for users' alliances. This group of women brought the system live while both maintaining other work responsibilities and not alienating the existing staff. Everyone knows that John Quinn faces formidable challenges but Vermont Government has a vast pool of talented and dedicated professionals to draw on for skills and ideas. The key to tapping this gold mine may be found in non-traditional sources (women) and in applying a standard process - Six Sigma.
