Over the past decade state and local governments have increasingly used information technology to support government operations. Many have developed intergovernmental information systems that perform only one business function or satisfy one program need. The result is a growing number of individual systems for government to government (G2G) business relationships at the state and local levels.
This project seeks to create an Internet Gateway (or a single point of passage) to test and evaluate mechanisms for G2G business relationships among state and local government organizations in New York State.
The prototype will channel three separate G2G business processes involving state agencies and a number of local governments through one common access point. The project is designed to test whether such a gateway would provide state, county, and municipal governments with greater efficiency, higher quality data, and more consistent and coordinated services. Throughout the project, the Center will examine the policy, management, technology, and financial factors that influence the development of the prototype.
