Concept for Operations for Integrated Justice Information Sharing Version 1.0

ConOps provides a discipline-specific focus for justice information sharing, which in turn can be used to identify and expose broader IT architectural and infrastructure issues that must be addressed by CIOs. While this ConOps focuses primarily on information sharing in the justice arena, the concepts are applicable to any business domain.

ConOps defines the discipline-specific, business functions for integrated justice and explores the architectural implications for state CIOs, who are responsible for planning the IT enterprise architecture. Additionally, ConOps defines fundamental concepts, principles, functions and operational requirements for integrated justice information sharing, presents a scenario of integrated justice information sharing and a general methodology for states to use in validating their IT architecture for information sharing characteristics. Finally, this document articulates an action plan for the validation, implementation and expansion of this ConOps to other disciplines.



Federal Privacy Law Compendium, Version 1.0

To help states identify and assess federal laws that may have privacy implications for their information systems and policies, the NASCIO Privacy Committee has developed the Federal Privacy Law Compendium, Version 1.0. It is intended to serve as a resource for summaries of federal laws that may have an impact on the privacy of citizens’ information that is entrusted to state government. The Federal Privacy Law Compendium provides a starting point for states in their assessment of whether the summarized federal privacy laws will impact state information system operations and/or policies.

The Federal Privacy Law Compendium summarizes ten federal laws that deal with the privacy of information and highlights instances of potential impact on state government. The federal privacy laws summarized are:

  • The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998
  • The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1984
  • The Computer Matching & Privacy Protection Act of 1988 & Amendments of 1990
  • The Driver’s Privacy Protection Act of 1994
  • The Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986
  • The Fair Credit Reporting Act of 1970
  • The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974
  • The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999
  • The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996
  • The Privacy Act of 1974


Business Case Basics and Beyond: A Primer on State Government IT Business Cases

This primer provides tools, concepts and a framework for addressing a number of critical challenges facing state Governors, CIOs and enterprise information technology (IT) organizations. These include leadership transitions in the offices of many Governors and in state legislatures, increasing budget deficits, the departure and replacement of state CIOs and a number of other long term concerns. These challenges will likely impact state government’s ability to maintain the momentum of e-government implementation and meet the policy and service goals of the Governors in areas such as education, economic and workforce development, public safety, healthcare and the environment. Most importantly, these challenges may impact states’ ability to deliver services to citizens and customers.
