The Innovation Imperative Change through Technology

Thriving Technology Sector a Key Pillar of Virginia’s Competitiveness

Technology Drives Virginia Economy

Virginia Atop the Nation’s States

  • In 2007 American Electronics Association noted Virginia has the highest concentration of tech workers in the nation

  • Sixth lowest unemployment rate in the nation (3.1% as of July 2007)

  • Kaine Administration: 44,329 new jobs and $5.9 Billion in new investment

  • In 2006, Forbes.com named Virginia the beststate for business

  • 32% of all new jobs statewide created in the technology sector(year ending June 2007)

  • Wages in the technology sector represent 29% of all Virginia salaries (year ending June 2007)

“in today's global economy…too many…kids aren't being prepared adequately for…either… work or college…our standards have not kept pace” – Governor Mark Warner

Nation’s Governors failed to achieve 1989 goal to achieve top ranking in science and math by 2000; “had the promise been fulfilled …, our results suggest that GDP would by 2015 be 4.5% greater”–Professor Eric Hanushek, et al.

Filling Tomorrow’s High End Workforce Change through Technology

Dual Strategy to Improve Our Finest, Extend Opportunity to All

Redesigning K-12 Curriculum

Virginia received a $500k grant from the NGA to establish a network of STEM centers built around Career and Technical Education; partnered with NASA to strengthen chemistry, physics core standards and introduce approach to K-12 engineering

Promoting AP Results

Virginia is one of 14 finalists for the $125M ExxonMobil funded grants to drive up the utilization of AP exams and the financially-reward students for scoring a 3 or greater; requires $2.4M in private matching funds contributed over 5 years

Providing Leaders, Hands-on Competition

Virginia is home to one of the largest FIRST Robotics regional competitions that draw 1500+ students annually; possible expansion to include additional sites across the Commonwealth to scale up participation

“From Competence to Excellence”

“Our education goal should be to promote true excellence by moving beyond our focus on competence, as measured by scores on standardized tests of minimum expectation.” Governor Tim Kaine

Beyond “Best Managed State”

“Our goal is to be the best managed state, but also to go beyond – to measure state government against the best business organizations. All highly effective organizations regularly review their budgets and procedures, constantly looking for ways to improve and implement best practices.

-Governor Kaine July 2007 Budget Memo

Despite increased investments needed for education, healthcare, public safety and transportation, Virginia’s historical tolerance for public investments hovers below 15%

Additional investments should be funded (at least in part) by savings generated within existing programs – re-allocating under-performing assets one budget tool to consider

Public Sector Innovation Adoption Holds Promise to Drive Efficiency

Productivity Investment Fund in Brief

Technology Adoption Life Cycle

chasm

Capital: Governor Kaine established $3M fund in January2007 to simplify government operations

Goals: In addition to operating cost savings, PIF encourages agencies to lower constituent transaction time and advance the Governor’s key performance measures

Competition: Only 25% of all qualified agency applications earned funding

Portfolio: Across two rounds, we are expecting a 4-1 ROI on $1.4M invested to fund the following savings initiatives:
