Los Angeles County to implement online application process

March 13th, 2014 by Temple City Tribune

To provide county residents with a convenient method to access government applications and permits, the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a motion by Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich to implement “E-government solutions” to County systems as recommended by the Citizen’s Economy and Efficiency Committee.

“This action accelerates the County’s initiative to utilize technology to facilitate the application and permitting process — saving taxpayer dollars, streamlining processes, and enhancing civic participation,” said Antonovich.

In 2012, Supervisor Antonovich introduced a motion directing the Commission to review the County’s E-government system and provide recommendations. Among the recommendations made by the Commission include:

1) Adopting E-government technologies including online permit and application submittals
2) Designating an E-government authority to cut red tape
3) Establishing a clear management process for high-tech projects
4) Establishing a countywide culture that embraces technology
5) Updating and replacing antiquated systems
6) Including E-government in departmental strategic plans
7) Improving management structure to eliminate redundancy
8) Establishing technology fund
9) Publishing a road map for E-government projects
10) Reorganizing existing Information Technology Group into smaller groups of specialists
11) Recruiting specialized personnel to spearhead key projects
12) Encouraging the County to evaluate and apply innovative E-government practices
