The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) launched a new website on Wednesday, Oct. 10, to promote collaboration across jurisdictions and agencies within state and local government.
The new website, www.nascio.org/advocacy/collaboration, highlights what are considered to be IT success stories taking place across the nation, and in addition, outlines by state ongoing projects that promote cross-boundary collaborative initiatives, according to NASCIO. Through a partnership with the Public Technology Institute, NASCIO researched what these collaborative initiatives share and used the research to highlight what the organization felt were examples of collaborative efforts that create efficiencies and cut costs.
“This new website provides the opportunity to highlight some great examples of effective collaboratives. Every one of these is a success story that can provide knowledge for future collaborative,” said David Behen, co-chair for the NASCIO State and Local Collaboration working group and Michigan CIO, in a statement. “Our intent is to grow the catalog over time and promote effective planning and operational execution of cross jurisdictional collaboratives.”
NASCIO will also present All On Board: Multi-Jurisdictional Collaboration, a panel discussion on cross-jurisdictional collaboration during its upcoming annual conference on Oct. 22 in San Diego.
