According to Government Technology, Teri Takai, as California’s newly appointed Chief Information Officer will soon begin to manage all IT service statewide to create more data sharing between state and local agencies, including law enforcement.
Takai said in a statement Friday, “The Governor’s Reorganization Plan is a critical step toward overhauling our state technology systems, saving precious taxpayer funds and increasing efficiency in California government . . . . By creating a more consolidated IT organization, we can better manage our equipment, personnel and purchasing while optimizing the use of technology and ultimately providing more services for the people of California.
