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.

Examining State Social Media Policies: Closing the Gaps

The issue brief focuses on state use of social media, specifically on state social media participation policies ("SMPP's"). NASCIO's Legal Advisory Working Group took a look at 31 SMPPs, which focus specifically on guidance/policy given to state employees regarding their participation in social media.

States have come a long way in the past few years, with the majority implementing social media policies or working towards one. However, some of the gaps found have the potential to open up states to some severe heartburn: including employee discontent, management concerns, public perception and liability.

The issue brief also addresses the inclusion of clauses on confidentiality, ethical conduct, security and privacy, and transparency in SMPP's.

What Makes Collaborative Initiatives Work?
Collaboration is a major part of the solution to sustaining and thriving government organizations and services. But it has to be done correctly so it is effective, can sustain through the life of the initiative’s intent, and can adapt with changing environmental circumstances. No matter what service area, mode of delivery, management area, or technology, collaborative arrangements should be considered as an alternative that may deliver the most effective outcomes.
