Lawmakers Want More Computing Info

State lawmakers have asked for more information related to two probes of Virginia’s troubled computing system.

Del. Kathy Byron (R-Bedford) sent letters Tuesday to Technology Secretary Len Pomata and to Sandra Whitley Ryals, director of the Department of Health Professions. The letters ask additional questions that came out of a June 29 hearing in front of the House Committee on Science and Technology, which Byron chairs.

Lawmakers are investigating the hacking of a prescription drug database, which put at risk thousands of personal files. The General Assembly is also looking into the Virginia Information Technologies Agency, the state’s troubled computing division, and its contractor, Northrup Grumman.

Some legislators believe the IT agency is horribly mismanaged and that Northrup Grumman has repeatedly failed to meet contractual obligations.
