The 2018 State CIO Survey

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 State CIO Top Ten: Why It's More Than a List

The Forces of Change presented in the first paper in this series have a direct relationship to and actually drive what surfaces each year as the Top Ten CIO Priorities.  The Top Ten Priorities are essentially presenting the CIO response to these forces.  Each year NASCIO asks the state and territorial CIOs to vote on their top priority strategies and top priority technologies.  These votes are used to take the pulse of the states and territories as a group and at a point in time.  It is through the lens of a Forces for Government Change model that we reframe our Top Ten list in this paper.  A new operating model is emerging and will continue to mature as the strategy for addressing the priorities within each state.  At its core is the concept that a state CIO’s operational competence and resulting political capital requires a broker of services approach to service delivery.

2017 State CIO Survey

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.
