Disseminating Knowledge Graphic
A core aspect of CTG's mission is to take an active role in the community of researchers and managers studying and adding to the growing body of knowledge about information technology (IT) in government. We accomplish this, in part, through our participation in local, national, and international academic and professional conferences. In addition, staff are involved in workshops, panels, and advisory boards at all levels of government and internationally to explore and advise on key issues such as intergovernmental relations, electronic records management, project management, and technology and public policy.

Below is a list of the venues where staff participated as speakers or presented research papers or project findings in 2006, along with the advisory and editorial boards and study panels on which CTG representatives served.

Building a Collaborative Framework for Enterprise Content Management at the United Nations
The United Nations is embarking on a significant new initiative to create an infrastructure for Enterprise Content Management (ECM). The size and complexity of the UN make this initiative a particularly challenging one and key leaders have recognized the need for a collaboration framework to guide the critical decision making, planning, and implementation processes. Through a two-day workshop, CTG worked with the UN to design a preliminary collaboration framework; a governance mechanism per se, to guide these critical processes.

The objective was to create an intellectual forum for digital government researchers in the US and China to exchange research ideas, foster research collaboration, and explore collaborative opportunities between the professional DG societies from both countries. The workshop focused on four panels: city government and services; environment; public health; and international digital government research and societies.

Sharon Dawes, director of CTG, served as one of the honorary co-chairs of the workshop and chaired the government practitioner panel. IntDG 2006 was sponsored jointly by the Chinese Academy of Science, the Chinese National Natural Science Foundation, and the US National Science Foundation.
