CTG Celebrates Ten years of Research, Partnership, and Innovation

In 1993, what started as a volunteer partnership project to help government agencies test new technology solutions became a full-fledged research center devoted solely to the public sector. To mark our ten years of innovative partnerhsip projects, we are publishing a CTG History Series in our 2003 newsletters.

Modeling Information Integration Initiatives

CTG has received a two-year, $1.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), to assemble a multidisciplinary team of researchers to examine government information integration projects. The research will develop a series of models to help researchers and government professionals better understand the social and technical processes that make up cross-organizational integration initiatives.
