Government Performance Audit Site Launched

This is really pretty wonkish, insider stuff, but the General Assembly launched a new website today for the long awaited successor the early-90's Government Performance Audit Committee (GPAC). The new site, appropriately enough, is entitled "GPAC II." Most of the site appears to be in the "just getting started" phase, but we are apprised of who is running the thing (a pair of legislative staffers named John Turcotte and Michele Nelson); that some RFP's are out there; and that things are underway. Though only one imperfect tool in the ongoing battle to make government more efficient, GPAC II is a promising idea and makes a heckuva' lot more sense that "government on auto-pilot" proposals like so-called "Taxpayer Protection Acts."
