NASCIO Brief Highlights State-Local Cross-Boundary Collaboration Governance and Financial Models



November 15, 2007 By

The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO), today announced the release of its brief "Connecting State and Local Government: Collaboration through Trust and Leadership."

This brief, a product of NASCIO's Cross-Boundary Collaboration Committee, led by Chair Otto Doll, CIO of South Dakota, explores the unique challenges and opportunities cross-boundary collaboration between state and local government entities.

"State CIOs must often reach beyond traditional organizational boundaries in order to provide innovative services," said Doll. "Through developing trust and communicating with participating organizations, and by implementing a sound financial structure at the outset of collaboration, state CIOs can help ensure a successful, mutually beneficial, state-local collaborative effort."

This brief highlights successful examples of state-local collaborations already under way in six states, and focuses on the governance and financial models that these states utilized for these collaborations. In addition, the brief examines the unique challenges facing state-local challenges and the ways in which states and localities can work together to achieve success and to lay the groundwork for future collaborative efforts.

"Citizen expectation for streamlined government service is increasingly going to demand cross-boundary collaboration," said NASCIO executive director Doug Robinson. "Leveraging technology to meet these service expectations, as well as to relieve fiscal burdens on states, is going to drive the need for collaboration across traditional organizational and geographic boundaries."
