Enterprise Architecture Maturity Model
An adaptive, dynamic enterprise architecture enables the enterprise to change and manage the complexities inherent in large government enterprise. Enterprise architecture brings an operating discipline to the organization and prescribes the necessary traceability from strategic intent to the capabilities that enable that intent. These capabilities include both business and technology components. Enterprise architecture doesn’t happen at once. It is an iterative, maturing discipline that provides management the operating discipline for organizing and engaging business and technology components to fulfill the mission of the organization. This maturity model provides a scale or metric for understanding where the organization is in its evolving discipline, and what steps are required to take it to the next level of maturity.

Innovative Funding for Innovative State IT
During the past several years, many states have found it increasingly difficult to obtain funding for state IT projects through traditional means, such as via appropriations from the state general fund. In spite of these tight economic times, citizens’ demand for improved ways of doing business with state government and 24 x 7 access to government services has remained strong. The purpose of Innovative Funding for Innovative State IT: New Trends and Approaches for State IT Funding is to provide states with innovative avenues of funding so that they can provide citizens with the government services they demand. This publication details eleven innovative funding models and provides case studies on how each model has been implemented by a state. Innovative Funding for Innovative State IT also includes a study conducted by NASCIO’s Corporate Leadership Council (CLC) that surveyed the states on the types of funding models they are currently using. The survey results from the twenty-three states that responded are included in this publication.

Federal Privacy Law Compendium, Version 1.0

It is intended to serve as a resource for summaries of federal laws that may have an impact on the privacy of citizens’ information that is entrusted to state government. The Federal Privacy Law Compendium provides a starting point for states in their assessment of whether the summarized federal privacy laws will impact state information system operations and/or policies.

Business Case Basics and Beyond: A Primer on State Government IT Business Cases
This primer provides tools, concepts and a framework for addressing a number of critical challenges facing state Governors, CIOs and enterprise information technology (IT) organizations. These include leadership transitions in the offices of many Governors and in state legislatures, increasing budget deficits, the departure and replacement of state CIOs and a number of other long term concerns. These challenges will likely impact state government's ability to maintain the momentum of e-government implementation and meet the policy and service goals of the Governors in areas such as education, economic and workforce development, public safety, healthcare and the environment. Most importantly, these challenges may impact states' ability to deliver services to citizens and customers.

About The Enterprise Architecture Program

The NASCIO Enterprise Architecture program was developed to enable the mission of state and local government. Government must continually reinvent itself to remain relevant by effectively and efficiently providing services to the citizens of this country. The path to this continual transformation must embrace leadership, management, coordination, communication and technology throughout government. Enterprise architecture is the discipline to appropriately define and leverage these capabilities within the complexities of government.

Funding to support the NASCIO EA Program and information sharing initiative is provided by a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs.
