Government Transparency

July 21, 2021
Please find the update below from the Department of Economic Community Development Commissioner, David Lehman, regarding government transparency. I am in full support of this announcement along with the transparency and ease of doing business with all state agencies it will bring.
This week, Governor Lamont signed legislation that focuses on modernizing and streamlining state government operations. The entire administration remains committed to removing barriers between government and business and making it easier to be successful in the state.

The new legislation focuses on the following critical initiatives:

  • Removing outdated bureaucratic practices.
  • Providing state agencies with access to modern digital tools.
  • Improving the state’s procurement processes.
  • Offering small and minority-owned businesses better access to work with state government.
