Is State IT Working on the Right Things?
What does it mean to be working on the right things? This determination is often difficult when considering the state as both an enterprise and a collective of individual agencies. Through interviews and formal surveys, NASCIO and Infosys Public Services gained insight from state IT leaders on the fundamental processes, mechanisms and criteria necessary to ensure that state IT is working on the right things. The resulting report will help state IT decision makers understand the key factors needed to identify the right things to do, see how they and their peer states stand against these factors and what can be done to bridge the gap.

In spite of this, there is evidence that the economy is recovering and some states are experiencing record numbers of retirement. This report outlines the current data on the state IT workforce and focuses on innovation, best practices and recommendations.

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.
