Scope of Work
The State-Local Internet Gateway Prototype 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 from three state agencies through one common place. 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.
The project will be completed in two phases. Phase One will include the generation of a set of characteristics, benefits, and barriers to achieving an "ideal" State-Local Internet Gateway in New York State. In addition, CTG will lead an investigation into similar projects in New York State and elsewhere.
Finally, several state agencies and local governments will form a prototyping team to define the structure and content of the prototype.
More specifically, Phase One deliverables are as follows:
- Analysis of existing efforts in NYS that link state agencies and local governments in a G2G relationship.
- Documentation and analysis of the policy, management, technology, financial and other factors that influence the development of a State-Local Internet Gateway in at least one other state.
- Definition of a structure, or architecture, for a State-Local Internet Gateway in New York.
- Definition of the information and transaction content to be included in the prototype.
- A proposal for moving into Phase Two of the project, including garnering corporate partner support, and seeking funding for local government involvement for Phase Two of the project.
The following is the approximate time frame for each phase:
- Phase One will continue until Spring 2003
- Phase Two will commence in Spring 2003 and end in Summer 2004
