Re: “Hutchinson announces reorganization plan

* Department of Transformation and Shared Services: It would include
Office of Personnel Management
Division of Procurement
Employee Benefits Division
Division of Building Authority
Department of Information Systems
Geographic Information Systems

What a frickng stew! What do the first 4 in this have to do with the 5th other than they use computers for their job. I feel for the citizens of Arkansas and the State Employees. This will be a nightmare. I don't see how AASIS can survive with all of its parts being owned by different agencies. At least before it was all under DFA.

Re: “State government transformation day expected Wednesday UPDATE

since AASIS just did a SAP Platform upgrade that probably cost a nice chunk of change it wouldn't make sense to split the Financials out separate, but then again this is State Government and he who pays the most dollars to their favorite politician wins. The whole reason for going with SAP back in 2000 was to have a fully integrated system, not Financials(AFGM) in one system and Payroll(AHRMS) in another and they passed interfaces back and forth in order to work together. With AASIS every line in an employee's paycheck can be tracked back over to it's appropriate spot in the Financial side. HR can't use an Appropriation, Fund, Grant, etc. that isn't active in FI. it would cost millions to split them apart.

Re: “Asa's government transformation plan is looming. People are talking

Stash, I have a very good friend that spent over 30 years at the Health Department and was there during the years of the Merger. She kept me informed as to how miserable things were and how the DHS people took over refusing to listen to long term Health Dept folks that knew what the hell they were doing. Parks and Tourism under Economic Development makes absolutely no sense, and bringing Stacy Hurst into the mix doesn't bode well for anybody.

Re: “Asa's government transformation plan is looming. People are talking

The merger a few years ago of DHS and the Health Department turned into such a boondoggle that after about 4 years it was undone. The public will suffer from this as the people that know what the heck are going on are shoved to the side or done away with.

Re: “Updated: Rutledge releases personnel records sought in FOI lawsuit

Do they sell the "Sarah Huckabee Sanders" pearls at the Republican souvenir shop? I see Leslie is wearing hers in this picture.
