The station noted on its web site:
"Survey of U.S. counties could apply to federal gov't too."
"The Center for Digital Government does a survey every year of U.S. counties to see how well they're keeping up with digital and Internet technology. It turns out that a lot of the same issues connected to digital capabilities that are being debated on the federal level are also being tossed around among county supervisors and leaders."
Federal News Radio is heard throughout the entire Washington Metro region at 1500 AM and in Frederick at 820 AM. The station generally covers both the Federal Government and those who do business with the government concentrating on management, procurement, technology, security, policy and pay & benefits. Additionally as an Internet based all news station, FederalNewsRadio.com has continued to expand and grow with the objective of being a reliable source for the latest news and information concerning feds - throughout the nation's capital and around the world.

This Digital Communities white paper highlights discussions with IT officials in four counties that have adopted shared services models. Our aim was to learn about the obstacles these governments have faced when it comes to shared services and what it takes to overcome those roadblocks. We also spoke with several members of the IT industry who have thought long and hard about these issues. The paper offers some best practices for shared government-to-government services, but also points out challenges that government and industry still must overcome before this model gains widespread adoption.
