    Notice of Meetings

    On Thursday, June 26, 2008, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on data and technology. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    This is the second of two public hearings the Commission has scheduled on data and technology. The goal of the Commission’s study is to develop recommendations to build a roadmap for data-driven policy strategies in state government. At the first hearing, the Commission explored governance and oversight issues surrounding the administration of the state’s information technology systems. At this hearing, the Commission will explore the opportunities and challenges of leveraging technology to improve government operations and public outcomes, and learn about best practices in using data to drive performance. A complete agenda is on the reverse.

    At this hearing, the Commission will hear testimony from the former Undersecretary for Health at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the California prison health care receiver and former state Chief Information Officer, and a panel of performance management leaders from Washington and Virginia.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. The Commission also encourages written comments.

    During its business meeting, the Commission will hear from the State Water Resources Control Board on the administration’s Water Quality Improvement Initiative.

    In addition, the California’s Water Boards Governance Subcommittee of the Little Hoover Commission will meet on Wednesday, June 25, 2008, from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Legislative Counsel’s Conference Room located on the lower level of 925 L Street, Sacramento, CA. The subcommittee will discuss potential reforms to the structure of the state and regional water boards.
