Pat McCrory on Technology

 


Establish cabinet-level Department of Information Technology

One area where we've found a lot of inefficiency is in information technology. What we've found is that the piecemeal approach we've taken during the past decade to information technology has had disastrous results. 74% of the State's IT projects have come in over budget and behind schedule.

We found that the state has 40 data centers with over 1,000 different computer systems. That's hardly an example of efficiency. We discovered that obvious opportunities to pool the purchasing power of several agencies are often bypassed.

My administration is going to insert accountability into out IT operations by proposing a new cabinet-level Department of Information Technology. The IT professionals throughout the Cabinet agencies and departments of the Executive Branch will report to the new department. However, they will remain housed with their secretaries to provide in-house expertise and service.

Stop delaying critical infrastructure maintenance

North Carolina's infrastructure capacity is a key element in attracting business and investment. Unfortunately, NC commuters and businesses lose billions of dollars each year from poor road quality and congestion. 29% of our bridges are deficient. The longer maintenance costs are deferred, the greater the eventual repair costs will be. Through better budgeting and planning, a McCrory administration will stop delaying critical infrastructure maintenance to avoid future economic hardship and budget woes
