The Stim Trio
  • Sustainability
  • Expand renewable energy
  • Double production of alternative energy
  • Modernize schools and 75 of federal buildings
  • Green the fleet
  • Infrastructure
  • Expand broadband access
  • Smart Grid (Energy), Transportation
  • Invest in science, technology and research

Health Information Technology (HIT) Standards and
adoption incentives for electronic medical
records -- 2 billion to invest in health
information technology and 17 billion in
incentives for Medicare and Medicaid providers.
Why Renovation?
  • At 230 years, there are no green field
  • Brings everything of value forward, makes ready
    for another season of service.

Crises Drive Major Periods of Change
  • Only a crisis, real or perceived, produces real
    change. When that crisis occurs, the actions
    that are taken depend on the ideas that are lying
  • Milton Friedman
  • Chicago School free market economist

The Idea Lying Around
In the January 22 issue, Economist Paul Krugman
wrote an open letter to the new president As
much as possible, you should spend on things of
lasting value, things that, like roads and
bridges, will make us a richer nation. Upgrade
the infrastructure behind the Internet upgrade
the electrical grid improve information
technology in the health care sector, a critical
part of any health care." Provide aid to state
and local governments, to prevent them from
cutting investment spending at precisely the
wrong moment.
Old School Public Works
The Long View
  • It was not our wealth that made our highways
    possible. It was our highways that made our
    wealth possible.
  • - Thomas Harris MacDonald, US Bureau of Public
    Roads, 1953

Digital Recovery
  • Roads were important. But without cars,
    insurance, traffic signals, driving schools,
    civil engineering schools, car and driver
    registration systems, fuel distribution networks,
    and parking lots, the benefits would be minimal.
  • Electrical wires were important. But without
    electricity generation, standards, appliances and
    programs to help people use electricity
    (regulations on utilities, etc.) the benefits
    would be limited.
  • Today, wired and wireless networks are important.
    But without widespread digital take-up and
    literacy standards, shared practices and systems
    (e.g., security, identity resources, etc.) tools
    (computers, sensors, software) and applications
    (e.g., e-health, telematics, e-gov, etc.) the
    benefits will be limited.

Priorities Then and Now Stay True
  • Consensus view of policy makers or state
    executives and state CIOs in identifying those
    areas most likely to become a higher priority in
    the coming biennium.

ARRA Jobs, Stabilization and Next
  • The 787 Billion American Recovery and
    Reinvestment Act (ARRA)
  • Preserve and Create jobs
  • Assist those in need
  • Advance technology and science
  • Investments in infrastructure, transportation and
  • Stabilize state and local government budgets

  • Distributed to state and local governments
    through grants and direct assistance
  • 49 Billion to State and Local in FY 2009

Existing Channels/ Partnerships
  • Administered separately across 15 federal
    agencies, 215 funding lines and 86 grant
  • Can be combined in creative ways that demonstrate
    the whole really is more than the sum of the
  • That will necessarily include bringing something
    to the table, including but not limited to local
    resources and collaboration agreements that
    reflect that the proposal is a priority to the
    requesting communities.

  • 80 of purchases come through term or
    convenience contracts
  • Sell against the ones that you and your partners
    are on

The Bottlenecks
  • Year 1 Expenditures (after adjusting for tax
    incentives) 120 Billion.
  • Stimulus coincides with procurement reform and
    small business preferences.
  • Spending must be (a) fast, (b) wise and (c)
    transparent pick your bottleneck
  • Wild Cards Hoarding, swapping and an a la carte

Criminal Justice and the Stim
  • Governors can choose to spend 18.2 percent, or
    8.8 billion, of their portion of the 53.6
    Billion Stabilization Fund allotment on public
    safety. Other provisions for the benefit of
    criminal justice and law enforcement

    explosives detection machines

Certifiably Stimulative
  • States have a 45-day window -- until April 3,
    2009 -- to certify that they will "request and
    use" stimulus.
  • To date, Connecticut, Illinois, Kansas,
    Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, Ohio,
    Oregon, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming
    have certified.
  • Reticence to accept all stimulus funds may stem
    from bow wave from one time money.
  • Risk that states will divert, delay and hoard

Transparency and Accountability
  • 16 States Will Receive Bi-Monthly Spending
  • U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO)
    picked 16 states to monitor spending
  • Accountability
  • States are concerned with lack of funding
    dedicated to accountability and oversight
  • Decline in staffing hinders capabilities
  • Differing accounting software may pose

Electronic Health Records
  • Defining Meaningful Use
  • Meaningful use must be demonstratedbut first, it
    must be defined
  • Discussions surrounding the definition are
  • Definition will determine how HIT is deployed
  • Industry groups are submitting their definitions
    which include
  • Adopting CCHIT as the certified EHR standard
  • EHRs being used to e-prescribe
  • A phased approach to adoption
  • Connection to a health information exchange (HIE)
    or alternative connection methods in the
    short-term while HIE is in development
  • Interoperability

The Long Runway
  • The Office of Management and Budget will issue
    new guidelines on contracting by September 30,
  • Fair, full and open competition may attenuate
    process, heightening importance of existing
    vehicles to get money moving.
  • It could take 2 4 years to spend the first 787
    Billion. There is still time to get aligned.

Four Reasons to Take a Pass
  • No such thing as free money unprecedented
    reporting and accountability requirements
  • Big league competition Those taking a flyer need
    not apply
  • Dont apply if you cant get out of your own way
  • Too busy and/or constrained to do anything with
    it even if you received Stim funds
