Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell says he wants an investigation into a massive computer failure that has crippled some government agencies for days.
McDonnell said Monday he wanted an independent, third party to perform an "operational and performance review" of the problems with the Virginia Information Technologies Agency.
Nearly 30 state agencies were affected by a major crash of the state's problem-plagued centralized computers last week. At least three agencies continued to experience problems on Monday including the Department of Motor Vehicles, which has been unable to process driver's licenses and identification cards.
Part of the review will include determining whether contractor Northrup Grumman should reimburse the state for lost business and productivity.
