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.

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.

The Enterprise Imperative: Leading Through Governance, Portfolio Management, and Collaboration

NASCIO, TechAmerica, and Grant Thornton LLP have collaborated for a fourth year on the annual survey of state government IT leaders. The 2013 survey report, The Enterprise Imperative, offers the latest insights from State CIOs and concludes these leaders are emphasizing effective enterprise governance models, adopting business disciplines, and forging the right relationships for collaboration. The 2012 survey – Advancing the C4 Agenda – focused on the balancing act that CIOs must maintain both in providing high-quality services and in delivering new, innovative solutions. These demands have not decreased over the past year. CIOs are responding by focusing on the enterprise, and by coordinating across boundaries. The enterprise focus may involve integrating governance and portfolio management across the state, improving the effectiveness of IT procurement, or deploying statewide identity and access management solutions.

The Health IT Landscape: Through the Lens of the State CIO

The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) and National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) formed a collaboration to determine how the State Chief Information Officer (CIO) views the current health information technology landscape. Specific areas of focus for this study included Medicaid Management Information Systems (MMIS), Medicaid Eligibility Systems, Data Governance and Identity Management, State Level Health Information Exchanges, Shared Services and Collaborations. This study combined HIMSS' expertise in health information technology and information exchange with NASCIO's expertise representing state CIOs and information technology executives from the states, territories and the District of Columbia. The results of this collaborative survey will serve those seeking to understand the current environment of State healthcare technology initiatives ranging from governance models to data exchange activities. This analysis will also facilitate understanding of the intersection of the state CIO's role with state health information technology (HIT) projects. This collaboration represents one of the first holistic analyses focused on the state CIO perspective of State HIT projects.

Advancing the C4 Agenda
NASCIO, TechAmerica, and Grant Thornton LLP have collaborated on the third annual survey of state government IT leaders. Since the last survey of state chief information officers (CIOs) in 2011 - A New C4 Agenda (Consolidation, Collaboration, Clout, and Change) – we find that CIOs continue to be confronted with myriad responsibilities and leadership challenges. Some of these focus on continuing to provide many high-quality IT services to state agencies and employees (such as email and networking) as well as to citizens (such as online registration and licensing). Others focus on procuring, implementing, and managing new IT services, such as cloud platforms, mobile devices and applications, and social media. CIOs must maintain a balancing act, not allowing either the old or the new to dominate their attention.

The 2011 State CIO Survey
NASCIO partnered with TechAmerica and Grant Thornton LLP to survey state and territorial chief information officers (CIOs) on their most challenging issues and significant opportunities. At a high level, the survey reveals this to be a time of evolving roles, changing organizational capabilities and demanding workloads for the CIOs. The themes that emerge from the 2011 survey results center on consolidation, collaboration, clout and change — a new state CIO agenda.
