In its 10th iteration, the 2019 State CIO Survey, The Responsive State CIO: Connecting to the Customer, takes a deep dive into how state IT leaders are targeting their responses to customer needs, in addition to managing the evolving IT responsibilities of state leaders. The survey is a joint publication of NASCIO, Grant Thornton LLP and CompTIA and includes responses from 49 state and territory CIOs on a range of issues. Two new topics for this year are customer relationship management and state and local collaboration. The 2019 State CIO Survey also highlights CIO business models, IT cost management, workforce, cybersecurity, performance management, acquisition, cloud services, digital government, data management and analytics and emerging technologies.
As more states have adopted an enterprise approach to managing IT and as the role of the CIO has evolved from solely being a provider of services, to a broker of shared services, CIOs have been focusing more on agency customer relationship management. In this publication we discuss current strategies to improve customer/agency relationships and we provide some key steps toward customer relationship success.
Compared to a private company or even any other level of government, the need to focus on privacy at the state level is significant. The amount of personal information citizens provide to their state outweighs anything a citizen provides to any one company. Because of this, we have seen number of states who have hired a chief privacy officer increase rapidly over the last several years. This NASCIO research provides a snapshot of the state chief privacy officer position, the background of CPOs, what they do in their roles, how the role is administratively structured and their advice for states interested in creating the position.
As internal and external pressures continue to mount, state technology leaders say they are confident that by building strong teams and embracing new products and development processes, state IT departments will be able to improve how they serve government agencies and residents. Those and other factors contributed heavily to the 2018 State CIO Survey, State CIO as Communicator: The Evolving Nature of Technology Leadership. The survey includes responses from all 50 state CIOs on a range of issues, from evolving business models to workforce and budget to access to innovation and facing the future. Respondents to this year’s survey represent more than 150 years of collective service as a state’s top technology official.

The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO), Grant Thornton LLP and CompTIA have collaborated for an eighth consecutive year to survey state government IT leaders on current issues, trends and perspectives. The survey sponsors seek to provide these state government IT leaders with an opportunity to voice their thoughts and opinions on matters of high importance. The role of the state CIO is being transformed by challenges to traditional business models, by emerging technologies that have the potential to redefine what we consider as "IT", and by the drive to implement digital government. Governors, legislators and business leaders can benefit from these knowledgeable insights about essential state IT services.
