Honey, have you seen that receipt for 240 million?
Please, don’t shoot the messenger.
I can’t help it. I don’t know how I stumbled on this article, but I did. And now you must share in the burden; be party to the pain.
The South Florida Sun Sentinel reported on a story about the State of Florida spending a lot of money on private attorney fees. No big deal; you’ve seen it before? Typical government waste story, right?
A spokesman for the Florida Attorney General said this when pressed for a detailed explanation on the State’s legal spending that clocked-in at 240 million dollars, “We do not have that information and are unaware of a way to capture expenditures for the purchase of outside legal services that would not entail an exhaustive search of documents.”
Your government needs secure digital document management
Take out the politics, forget the players involved. Look what he said. We don’t have the information. We are unaware of way to capture the information. Finding information is exhausting.
Huh? They spend $50 million per year. They have no information? Not one person thought that was a problem?
Here’s the thing—there is a way to capture the information accurately and efficiently.
Ignorance isn’t bliss; it is powerlessness. Think about how would you feel if you couldn’t access and utilize your own information? Now imagine stories are being written about your failure.
