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.

Innovative Funding for State IT: Models, Trends, and Perspectives

Based on a survey of the states, this report examines the use of innovative, alternative and financing funding models for technology projects that enable states to deliver savings, and improve IT services to citizens. The results update NASCIO’s 2003 report on innovative funding, “Innovative Funding for Innovative State IT: New Trends and Approaches for State IT Funding,” and provide state CIOs with information and insights for the facilitation of innovative funding initiatives in their own states. A product of NASCIO’s 2008 Innovative Funding for State IT Working Group, this report was developed based on results from an all states survey of state CIOs; thirty-one states responded concerning their IT funding initiatives.

Innovative Funding for Innovative State IT

During the past several years, many states have found it increasingly difficult to obtain funding for state IT projects through traditional means, such as via appropriations from the state general fund. In spite of these tight economic times, citizens’ demand for improved ways of doing business with state government and 24 x 7 access to government services has remained strong. The purpose of Innovative Funding for Innovative State IT: New Trends and Approaches for State IT Funding is to provide states with innovative avenues of funding so that they can provide citizens with the government services they demand. This publication details eleven innovative funding models and provides case studies on how each model has been implemented by a state. Innovative Funding for Innovative State IT also includes a study conducted by NASCIO’s Corporate Leadership Council (CLC) that surveyed the states on the types of funding models they are currently using. The survey results from the twenty-three states that responded are included in this publication.

Innovative Funding for Innovative State IT is divided into three main sections, the first of which describes eleven innovative funding models as well as baseline requirements for implementing each model and the benefits each model may bring. The second section includes the compiled results of the CLC’s survey regarding states’ current use of innovative funding models. This section also details trends in state IT funding identified from the CLC’s survey. The third section includes case studies from nine states that exemplify how each innovative funding model has been implemented. The states that provided case studies for this publication are: Massachusetts, Texas, Minnesota, Tennessee, Ohio, Missouri, Delaware, Arizona and Hawaii. The appendices include checklists to give states a starting point for implementing each funding model as well as a chart of the CLC’s survey results and a list of other innovative funding resources.
