Refining the California COVID Reporting System (CCRS)
The government budget process is competitive. Agencies are competing for a limited amount of funding, which means they must be able to make a strong case for why their program should be funded. Political factors can also come into play, requiring agencies to build support for their solution among key stakeholders, such as the governor, legislature, and special interest groups.
With many states facing budget shortfalls and a freeze on spending, agencies more than ever need to control their spend management per the Budget Letter, a necessity for all governments regardless of their financial situation. However, existing processes and technologies need to meet these stringent requirements. City Innovate has managed over 15 billion dollars of government spending on critical goods and services, developing deep expertise in helping agencies best manage budgets to serve their constituents.
In July 2021, Governor Newsom signed Senate Bill 156 into law to bring equitable high-speed broadband service to more Californians. The law leveraged over $3B in federal American Rescue Plan funding, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, to bring internet connectivity to millions of homes, businesses, and community organizations across California who don’t have access to high-speed, reliable internet. In 2020, two million California households (15%) – many in low-income, rural, and tribal communities – did not have broadband access. The State’s Department of Technology, which has an annual budget of $500 million was tasked with creating a team, workflows, and oversight to effectively manage this enormous influx of funding to ultimately lay over 1,500 miles of fiber optic cable underground.
