CTG Partnership to Build Prototype State-Local Internet Gateway

Today, state and local governments are connected by many separate information systems; each devoted to a single purpose. The University at Albany's Center for Technology in Government (CTG) has initiated a broad collaborative partnership to build and evaluate a State-Local Internet Gateway Prototype to test an innovative alternative for intergovernmental work. The prototype is designed to enable participating agencies and localities to find information, conduct a variety of business processes and form strategic working relationships through one common point.

The partnership includes state agencies, more than a dozen local governments and three information technology corporations: CGI Information Systems and Management Consultants; Keane, Inc.; and Microsoft Corporation.
