In a wide-ranging interview, Cunningham, who joined the state government last August, said he's been stymied by budget shortfalls, financial waste, a culture that doesn’t encourage cross-department collaboration and a federated IT model that creates redundancies. “The duplication and wastage of time, energy — which we all know equals money — is insane," Cunningham told Colin Wood.
