NASCIO was pleased to collaborate with the TechAmerica and Grant Thornton on a survey of State CIOs which sheds light on how CIOs around the country drive change in the way government works and enable states to do more with less. “State governments will continue to endure tough fiscal conditions, which makes the state CIO's job even more challenging. However, the results of the survey clearly indicate this situation presents opportunities for CIOs to execute on cost-saving strategies, innovative business models, and advance the use of emerging technologies” said Doug Robinson, Executive Director of NASCIO.
Federal, state, local, and tribal governments currently issue numerous credentials to constituents for access to facilities or services based on a variety of endorsements. Many of the endorsements provide citizens with access to federally funded programs, but the issuance of credentials remains program-specific and has become a redundant process for many agencies and departments. By issuing a digital identity that has multi-platform credentialing options, it will result in improved efficiency and convenience for both users and issuers. To the extent such credential is honored by commercial entities, it will also improve efficiency and security of commercial transactions, including on-line transactions.
