Funding: The Drive Wheel for Cross-Jurisdictional Collaboration
In many cases, funding a specific initiative can entail more than one funding source working together as a basket of funding streams to provide both initial seed funding and ongoing sustained funding. Seeking funding is necessary, coupled with the vision, goals and objectives of a collaborative. When evaluating grants, loans and direct payments, the intent of the funding stream must match the intent of the collaborative initiative. In considering the full portfolio of funding models, the funding options pursued must be appropriately matched to a long term sustainment strategy for the collaborative. Further, evaluating funding approaches essentially involves clear understanding of the total cost of ownership that includes transactional cost economics (TCE). Securing funding starts with an understanding the full costing.

2014 State CIO Survey: Charting the Course
NASCIO, TechAmerica, and Grant Thornton LLP have collaborated for a fifth consecutive year to survey state government IT leaders on current issues, trends and perspectives. The continuing economic situation creates problems for states when citizen demands for services continue or grow. 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. Governors, legislatures and business leaders can benefit from these knowledgeable insights about essential state IT services. As major changes continue to sweep through the state IT landscape, we asked state CIOs to share their perspective on the status and future direction of the state CIO organization and the overall enterprise. While the survey covered a wide variety of topics, we asked CIOs to focus particularly on three main topics - the planning and oversight of critical projects, sourcing and the use of data as a strategic asset. These topics share a common theme in that they all require the CIO to establish priorities, collaborate with stakeholders and integrate with multiple external organizations.

NASCIO 2014 Cybersecurity Awareness Resource Guide
For the 2014 observance of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, NASCIO has updated its Resource Guide for State Cybersecurity Awareness, Education, and Training Initiatives. The guide includes new information from our state members, who provided examples of state awareness programs and initiatives. This is an additional resource of best-practice information, together with an interactive state map to allow users to drilldown to the actual resources that states have developed or are using to promote cyber awareness. It includes contact information for the CISO, hyperlinks to state security and security awareness pages, and information describing cybersecurity awareness, training, and education initiatives.

The Resource Guide is a modifiable work that should provide a valuable reference resource for Cyber Security Awareness Month, as well as the ongoing planning of security awareness and training efforts state programs may undertake thereafter.

The States and FirstNet: An Early Look from the State CIOs
As states begin to plan for FirstNet, a nationwide high-speed wireless broadband network dedicated to public safety, they are developing divergent approaches to planning and varied strategies for engaging with local and federal partners. This research report is based on the results of a survey of State CIOs. It provides a first look at the approaches being employed for engagement with local stakeholders, the federal FirstNet Authority, and even other states. The data also shows a significant distribution in the maturity of state planning, ongoing outreach, and governance strategies.

States and Open Data: From Museum to Marketplace - What's Next
NASCIO takes a look at what has occurred across the states since NASCIO's first report on open data published in 2009. This latest report examines progress in open data across state and local government. Open data initiatives are advancing at all levels of government in the United States and globally. States and local governments have partnered with industry to create innovative capabilities in delivering data to consumers. Those consumers include citizens, business, non-profit organization and government. The report also presents recommendations for continuing to advance state government open data initiatives and begin moving to a next level of maturity.

Capitals in the Clouds Part VI: Cloud Procurement: From Solicitation to Signing
As first reported in the NASCIO/TechAmerica/Grant Thornton 2013 State CIO Survey, The Enterprise Imperative: Leading Through Governance, Portfolio Management, and Collaboration, states continue to turn to cloud solutions, with services such as email and storage remaining the most popular. 74% of respondents said that their state has some applications in the cloud. For several years now, the NASCIO has discussed the transition in the state information technology environment as state CIOs sought new approaches to traditional delivery models. The recession prompted state leaders to examine new approaches and leverage technology opportunities. The use of cloud services by state government is the most obvious manifestation of this transition. In 2011, NASCIO launched its Capitals in the Clouds series on this topic. Three years later, states continue to investigate and to leverage cloud solutions, software as a service (SaaS) and infrastructure as a service, with services such as email and data storage remaining the most popular.
