Cross-Jurisdictional Collaboration: Lessons from Current Practice & Upcoming Priorities (webinar)
For the past decade and more, shared services in government have focused on standardizing and consolidating digital networks, data, and applications. This work is shifting control over operations upward from the program or agency level to the agency-wide or jurisdiction-wide level. Progress has often been contentious and difficult, but is now picking up speed. As digital opportunities continue to expand, new cloud-based collaboration will be required across jurisdictional boundaries. Local governments will need to partner with other local governments, state governments with other state governments, and state and local governments with each other and the federal government as well as with private sector providers. This webinar will explore such opportunities, primarily through case studies from Michigan and Ohio. By the end of the session we would like all participants to have a clearer sense of what kinds of cross-boundary collaboration are now under way, what approaches need more attention, and how to get started in the upcoming post-election period.

State Cybersecurity Resource Guide

The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) supports National Cybersecurity
Awareness Month, now in its 13th year. State CIOs and the programs they administer have supported
cybersecurity awareness month from its inception, and states address IT security and privacy awareness,
education, and training on a year-round basis.

For the 2016 observance, NASCIO has updated its Resource Guide for State Cybersecurity Awareness, Education, and Training Initiatives. This guide includes:

  • Updated information on state awareness programs, initiatives and best-practice information;
  • Contact information for state chief information security officers (CISOs);
  • Hyperlinks to state security and security awareness pages; and
  • Information describing cybersecurity awareness, training, and education initiatives.

The Resource Guide is a working document that should prove a valuable resource for Cybersecurity Awareness Month, as well as the ongoing planning of security awareness and training efforts state programs may undertake thereafter.

State of Washington: Technology Employer of Choice Initiative
NASCIO 2016 State IT Recognition Award Recipient in the category of State CIO Office Special Recognition

Executive Summary*
Finding and retaining a cutting-edge technology workforce is the single most important and impactful challenge for the public sector. Moreover, in Washington State,  nearly half of the government workforce is eligible to retire within the next five years. For Washington, this challenge is compounded by the fact that state government competes for talent in a region that has some of the biggest technology brand names in the world, including Microsoft, Amazon, Disney, Expedia, Valve, Apple and more.

The state must be able to position itself as a viable competitor of talent in the region so that agencies can hire and retain the technology workforce  necessary to do business.Talent competitors have been adapting their workforce strategies to be more competitive. Theyhave aligned their strategies to the needs of the millennial and digital native generations, and state government must do the same. Finding strategies that will work in the public sector means taking risks and piloting new ideas. The state’s consolidated technology agency, Washington Technology Solutions (WaTech),  is addressing IT talent management challenges by implementing a diverse set of strategies, including:

Experimenting with self-management (Holacracy)
Piloting physical space changes
Reclassifying state government technology jobs
Hiring for value alignment instead of skills
Finding top talent in innovative ways
Transforming practices in government

Each of these strategies is at a different phase of implementation, but WaTech is already seeing results. By embracing emergent and innovative organizational and recruitment methodologies, WaTech  is helping position Washington state government as a technology employer of choice.
