Tennessee cutting down the hours

A statewide automation initiative in Tennessee that officials estimate is already saving as many as 75,000 hours of annual work is launching a new round of projects expected to cut even more inefficiencies. Bob Pucci, Tennessee’s executive director of intelligent automation, told StateScoop that a program that began by automating 40 processes across 13 agencies is adding another 80 processes at seven more agencies. With the aid of a work style Pucci described as nimble and collaborative, the state could eliminate as many as 250,000 work hours annually by next July.   Colin Wood reports.

IT moves in Idaho

Idaho Gov. Brad Little last week named Alberto Gonzalez, the head of the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles, as the new administrator of the Office of Information Technology Services. Gonzalez, who’d led the DMV since 2017, started in his new role Monday. Gonzalez’s appointment at Idaho ITS follows the resignation of Jeff Weak, who has taken a private-sector job, according to a press release from Little’s office. In addition, the state's CISO, Keith Tresh, also stepped down last month. Benjamin Freed has the story.

The FBI and CISA said in an advisory yesterday that while voter registration systems and other election-related systems remain a target of interest for malicious actors, the agencies have "no reporting to suggest cyber activity has ever prevented a registered voter from casting a ballot, compromised the integrity of any ballots cast, or affected the accuracy of voter registration information." At the same time, the agencies said this week they remain concerned about the uptick in verbal and physical threats against election workers, particularly in Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Nevada and Wisconsin — all of which have seen aggressive activity by 2020 election deniers. Read the advisory.
