Theresa Pardo presents paper on cross-boundary information sharing at ICEG 2009 Conference in Boston
As part of this NSF-funded project, CTG researchers have identified the factors which influence clarity of roles and responsibilities in cross-boundary information sharing initiatives. These findings are based on data from eight case studies of U.S. state and local government public health and criminal justice information initiatives. The paper discusses how "exercise of authority," "the diversity of participating organizations," and "past experiences" affect clarity of roles and responsibilities in information sharing efforts that cross the boundaries of governmental organizations.
“This paper fills in a gap in what we know about the determinants of clarity of roles and responsibilities in multi-organizational information sharing initiatives. Few previous studies have attempted to understand which factors influence how clarity of roles and responsibilities is created in these types of efforts,” said Pardo, director of CTG and lead author of the paper.
ICEG 2009 provided the opportunity for researchers, practitioners, and academics from around the world to present their research findings, work in progress and conceptual advances in any branch of e-Government.
