NASCIO Cross-Jurisdictional Collaboration Working Group

GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS & ADVOCACY   |   Cross-Jurisdictional Collaboration

NASCIO's State and Local Collaboration Resources

NASCIO is identifying and highlighting successful collaboratives that demonstrate what is possible when jurisdictions and agencies "join up" to solve a problem, address a need, or pursue a new opportunity. Through collaborative governance structures, jurisdictions can pool funding; increase buying power; remove or reduce redundant investments in technology, business processes and organization; and make significant gains in the quality of service.

We are continually looking for great ideas that can be extended to include additional jurisdictions or can be replicated. Please submit scenarios using our 10 element outline and form here. Scenarios should be submitted to Eric Sweden at esweden@NASCIO.org.

Sharing costs in cross jurisdictional collaboratives Sharing costs in cross jurisdictional collaboratives
March 2014

State Chief Information Officers have made the case for forming cross jurisdictional collaboratives when addressing state government services. State CIOs have come to understand the opportunities and the value proposition in forming collaborative arrangements. Cost sharing is foundational to any collaborative and is often the primary reason for the initial formation of a collaborative. This report proposes a list of essential design elements for cost sharing and provides some examples of successful collaboratives.


Effective Cross-Jurisdictional Collaboration – Governance is Critical! Effective Cross-Jurisdictional Collaboration – Governance is Critical!
July 2013

Cross-jurisdictional collaboratives are on the rise.  As the number of such collaboratives increases, there are essential ingredients for framing and sustaining successful and even exceptional collaborative arrangements that deliver real outcomes.  As NASCIO reviewed successful collaboratives, proper governance continually surfaced as one of those essential ingredients for effective sharing of government information and services and effective employment of technology across two or more enterprises.  This issue brief presents examples of effective governance and describes what constitutes effective governance


What Makes Collaborative Initiatives Work?

October 2012
Collaboration is a major part of the solution to sustaining and thriving government organizations and services. But it has to be done correctly so it is effective, can sustain through the life of the initiative's intent, and can adapt with changing environmental circumstances. No matter what service area, mode of delivery, management area, or technology, collaborative arrangements should be considered as an alternative that may deliver the most effective outcomes.

NASCIO is actively investigating existing collaboratives in order to promote collaborative arrangements across government and to uncover operating discipline and best practices that make for successful collaboratives.These best practices support strategy, governance, program and project management, organization, operations and effective application of technology.Collectively these best practices are imbedded in the enterprise architecture of successful collaboratives.

Why Should Government Join Up? Why now? What do we gain? Why Should Government Join Up? Why now? What do we gain?

September 2012
Maintaining and increasing government service delivery in the current economic circumstances is nearing the impossible. What is the answer? Part of the answer is the formation of collaborative relationships across agencies and jurisdictions to share and in some circumstances consolidate investments. State and local governments can not afford to go it alone. Through collaborative governance structures, jurisdictions can pool funding, increase buying power, remove or reduce redundant investments in technology and actually make significant gains in the quality of service.

Why Should Government Join Up? Why now? What do we gain? Connecting State and Local Government: Collaboration through Trust and Leadership

November 2007
Citizen demand for efficient government often drives state agencies to seek out opportunities to deliver traditional services in non-traditional ways. Engaging in cross-boundary collaboration can be a way for states to leverage costs while providing citizens with streamlined services. Such collaboration is inevitable for state CIOs and this brief, a product of NASCIO's Cross-Boundary Collaboration Committee, explores the unique challenges and opportunities of cross-boundary collaboration between state and local government entities. Highlighting successful examples of state-local collaborations already underway, this brief features the governance and financial models that were utilized for these collaborations. In addition, this brief examines the unique challenges facing state-local challenges and explores the ways in which states and localities can work together to achieve success and to lay the groundwork for future collaborative efforts.

Why Should Government Join Up? Why now? What do we gain? Getting Started in Cross-Boundary Collaboration: What State CIOs Need to Know

May 2007
State agencies are increasingly crossing organizational boundaries and combining resources in order to achieve joint goals, produce innovation and serve citizens. This brief examines the drivers behind cross-boundary collaboration and outlines the top ten considerations for state CIOs at the outset of collaboration. This brief not only illustrates why state CIOs should consider cross-boundary collaboration and how collaboration begins, but also identifies various types of collaboration, and provides tangible success stories and lessons learned.
