PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo got together with state and business leaders Tuesday to mark the first anniversary of her Lean Government Initiative.

The program was created in an effort to “make government more responsive to the people it serves,” according to Raimondo’s office. The aim was to push state employees to work more efficiently by eliminating unnecessary steps and reducing wait times.

Raimondo said the program has been making it easier to do business in Rhode Island.

“I have to say it’s exceeded my expectation which is a credit to everyone in this room,” Raimondo stated Tuesday. “We want to make sure we have an effective, efficient, action-oriented government, and that’s exactly what we’re seeing.”

According to the governor, more than 1,600 state employees have received training as a part of the initiative and 50 process reviews are underway or complete across the state’s government services.
