News & Notes

A request by Assemblywoman Kristin Olsen, R-Riverbank, for an audit of a troubled technology upgrade at the state Board of Registered Nursing has been approved, she announced Tuesday. Olsen asked the Joint Legislative Audit Committee for an audit on the new electronic processing system within the Department of Consumer Affairs, specifically the system called BreEZe that is used by the nursing board. The $52 million upgrade was supposed to streamline license applications and improve enforcement databases for the 37 licensing boards under Consumer Affairs. “BRN’s implementation of BreEZe caused a backlog of 4,000 licensing applications that took months to make current,” a news release from Olsen said.
