Calif. seeks $10M for e-gov

California Gov. Gray Davis has proposed allocating an additional $10 million

to the state's electronic government programs. In addition, Gray is calling

for the creation of an e-government business advisory council to provide

private-sector advice on state e-government efforts.

The May revisions to the state budget include $3.61 million to redesign

the state's World Wide Web page, and for an enhanced e-mail system.

The proposal would provide:

* $2.45 million for government-to-business systems, providing $600,000

for online professional licensing; $450,000 for online competitive bid processing;

$400,000 for e-procurement expansion to benefit small business and access

multiple departments involved in procurement; $750,000 for environmental

regulation of business; and $250,000 for interactive employer/employee

job posting and recruitment.

* $1.5 million for the Department of General Services to upgrade equipment

and wiring and to provide disaster recovery capabilities.

* $1.2 million for government-to- citizen systems, including $200,000

for online domestic employer tax filing; $500,000 to expand Department of

Motor Vehicle online services to include change of address, duplicate licenses,

appointments and vanity plates; and $500,000 for state permits.
