$2.4 billion....seriously, are there even Fortune 500 companies that spend that much on IT?
I can see if it's a globalized company...but the State of Virginia, (pardon me, the Commonwealth of Virginia.....I forget we have 4 of those....), with its roughly 8 million citizens? Someone is definitely getting robbed.
In Texas, the average that state spent on IT spending was $274 Million (from 2008 through 2010). And that state has one of the world's best economies by itself, not to mention has a lot more people! You can look it up for yourself here: Texas Transparency - Check Register Search Tools: Spending by Agency
Just click on "Search Spending By Agency", choose a Fiscal year and then the Department of Information Resources.
And Virginia needs to spend $2.4 billion?! LMAO! WOW.......

Minor point, but I am looking at TPWD for FY 2009, and they spent ballpark 6 mil on IT-related services and equipment, under 'other expenditures'... outside of payments to DIR. The true amount of IT is probably MUCH higher than what DIR spends directly.
