Ind. Gov't. - DCS tightens controls on release of information from its office

Kara Kenney of WRTV 6 reports:

In a Sept. 11 memo to all staff, DCS Director James Payne wrote that the agency’s executive team had created a Data Governance Committee to review all data requests and releases.

“Recently, we’ve encountered some problems with multiple people releasing information from various sources,” the memo read. “Sometimes this information gets misinterpreted and reported in such a way the is not consistent with other reports.”

Effective immediately, DCS will not release data to the public without a review from the committee, including press releases, staffing data, Power Point presentations, external emails, verbal or written communications and other presentations.
