In Franklin County, Ohio, officials are designing a new procurement system from the ground up.
Perhaps the catalyst for such an endeavor was the fact that County Auditor Clarence Mingo waited for more than two months to receive the iPad Mini he ordered. At that point, someone realized that a dose of transparency and accountability would do everyone some good.
Franklin County Data Center participated in the EMA Regional Functional Exercise November 21, 2013
The purpose of the Functional Exercise was to provide participants with an opportunity to evaluate current plans and capabilities for a response to catastrophic incident within the 8 County Columbus Metropolitan Statistical Area. The exercise simulated the activation of County Emergency Operations Center. This was the first time the Data Center participated and found it very helpful and worthwhile.
