A Message from our Director
Celebrating 20 Years of Innovation
Twenty years ago CTG opened its doors as a research center at the University at Albany. We were charged by then New York Governor Mario Cuomo to “pursue new ways of applying technologies directly to the practical problems of information management and service delivery in the public sector.” CTG was the “first of its kind” providing an innovative model of public-private partnerships where government, academia, and the corporate community could partner on experiments with technology to learn what worked, what didn’t, and why. In these first 20 years, we have witnessed dramatic changes in technology and how it is used. What is on the horizon for the next chapter is truly exciting and we look forward to taking the journey with you.
Robert J. Jones, President, University at Albany, said “The University at Albany is proud of the achievements of CTG and offers its congratulations to Theresa Pardo and her staff for 20 years of award winning research and service to governments here in New York State and throughout the world.”
