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.

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.
As artificial intelligence (AI) becomes more and more a part of our daily lives, we are seeing state governments and state CIOs turning to AI for a broad host of applications. This publication discusses the definitions around artificial intelligence (AI), as well as the challenges, opportunities and applications for state governments. The report also lays out several examples of how states are using AI, along with considerations for its development and implementation. From their role as change managers, to involvement in procurement, the publication also outlines the implications for state CIOs.
Multisourcing is emerging as the discipline for managing a complex and diversified portfolio of services and service providers. These services are being employed to meet the continual evolving demand for creatively delivering government services through new channels with new functionality. In this evolving circumstance there is the need for a new operating model the state chief information officer can employ to bring together agencies needs and demands with available emerging technologies and management disciplines. This report opens the door to this discussion and explores the underlying forces of change that are driving the need for a new operating model.
