Wisconsin gets a new CIO

Wisconsin officials said Tuesday that Trina Zanow, a longtime employee in the state’s Department of Administration, has been named to serve as its new chief information officer. Zanow, who’s been with the state government for nearly 25 years, succeeds David Cagigal, who stepped down last Friday after nearly eight years as CIO and head of the state’s Division of Enterprise Technology. Most recently, she served as DET’s deputy director, overseeing activity at state’s emergency operations center during the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Benjamin Freed reports.

Minded by the light

New Jersey Transit announced Monday it will begin studying whether digitally mapping the interior of its buses to place virus-killing lights could help reduce the spread of COVID-19. Working with a research center at Rutgers University, NJ Transit will seek to discover whether strategically placed short-wavelength ultraviolet lights, also known as UVC lights, can disinfect parts of buses that may harbor coronavirus. “We’re trying to separate fact from fiction here," said Patrick Szary, the Rutgers researcher leading the study. "There’s a lot of excitement about addressing COVID-19, and you want to do it right.” Ryan Johnston reports.

The search for savings

Ohio officials last week asked state-government vendors, including technology suppliers, to take 15% pay cuts to “reduce expenditures due to the economic conditions” brought on by the COVID-19 health crisis ahead of the state’s new fiscal year, which begins July 1. The state is facing a $2.5 billion revenue shortfall headed into fiscal 2021; meanwhile, states are still pleading for a federal rescue to the tune of $500 billion to avoid total economic collapse.
