LEXINGTON, Ky., May 28, 2015 – The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) continues its State CIOs Make a Difference campaign by featuring State Chief Information Officer (CIO) Mark VanOrden and the Utah Department of Technology Services.

Over the next two weeks, NASCIO will profile the accomplishments and main areas of focus for Utah’s Department of Technology Services. The campaign will specifically highlight the success and cost savings of Utah’s portal – Utah.gov – which offers a variety of state government services online, including a mobile-first perspective for mobile device users and a number of mobile and web applications designed to provide Utah citizens with convenient access to state services and information.
