Digital States Performance

The Digital States Performance Institute (DSPI) is not a place, but a community of interest around modernizing and improving government. The newly expanded DSPI builds on the successes of the biennial Digital States Survey with a year-round program of ongoing original research, analysis and tools in the strategic planning process through regional events, Webinars, online communities or panels. All of it is intended to extend the value of the Digital States benchmarks through the documentation and sharing of best and emerging practices by states that are committed to meeting today's needs and tomorrow's expectations.
