Florida finally has a new CIO

Florida State Rep. James Grant ended his re-election campaign this week, opting instead to accept an offer as the state’s new chief information officer. He's the state's first permanent CIO since Eric Larson resigned in January 2019, following a series of interim replacements and organizational shuffling. Grant played a key role in forming the position he will now fill; he introduced the bill that created the latest iteration of the state's technology division, called Florida Digital Service, and redesigned the job's experience requirements. But he insisted to the Tampa Bay Times that there is no connection between that work and his appointment. “Anyone who thinks I created a job for myself can’t read policy," he said.

Phil Murphy called for COBOL programmers to lend a hand fixing the state's aged mainframe. Now a bill moving through the New Jersey Senate would direct the state’s auditor to investigate. If passed, the auditor will have six months to make sense of how the legacy technology failed and whether the state's Division of Unemployment and Temporary Disability Insurance lived up to its statutory mandate. Read all about it.

More CIO news in Colorado

In case you missed it: After more than a year-and-a-half as the state’s top technology official, Colorado Chief Information Officer Theresa Szczurek will step down next month. She told StateScoop she's not sure where she's headed next, but that she considers her work with the Colorado state government — which included advancements in its customer service and the hiring of several key positions within the technology organization — complete. “I came in, did what was needed to be done and now it’s time for me to move on. I sort of think of myself as a turnaround specialist, and I think that’s what the governor had in mind," she said. Colin has the story.
