Rauner tours Central Management Services to gauge streamlining efforts
This week, Gov. Bruce Rauner toured the Illinois Department of Central Management Services (CMS), during which CMS staff shared updates on efforts to streamline government operations.
"By reforming how the state does business, we can empower state agencies to deliver innovative, responsive, high-quality services for the people of Illinois," Rauner said. "CMS is at the forefront of transforming how government operates and maximizing value for the taxpayer. I am proud of the accomplishments our employees have achieved in this effort and will continue to support their critical mission."
The CMS Office of Rapid Results trains staff and implements efficiency improvements in various agencies, including the Public Health, Revenue and Transportation Departments. The CMS Bureau of Personnel shared its efforts to examine employment applications. The processing times for applications have been reduced from nearly a year to four months. The Chief Procurement Office has also implemented reforms that streamline the procurement process and save taxpayer dollars.
"Our employees work hard every day to responsibly manage state operations and to enable the delivery of essential services from every state agency," CMS acting Director Michael Hoffman said. "Through innovative approaches and application of solid management and leadership principles, we are revolutionizing how our state government meets the needs of the public it serves."
