In 2009 CTG maintained its strong record of attracting a diverse mix of
funding and other resources. Our funding portfolio continues to provide
opportunities to bring together researchers, practitioners, and students
from New York State, the US, and around the world.
A solid history of support from the National Science Foundation
was evident through CTG’s continued work on multi-year projects,
including: modeling interorganizational information integration and
building a sustainable international digital government research
community. In addition, CTG also received NSF funding to work on
three new projects with the bulk of work to occur in 2010-11. These
projects are 1) understanding transnational public sector knowledge
networks, 2) working with leading researchers and practitioners to lay
out a grand challenges research agenda on information, technology,
and governance, and 3) working with the US General Services Administration on developing a citizen services evaluation framework.
Overall, CTG’s financial portfolio consisted of 24% federal grants,
5% government contracts, 66% base funding, and 5% other resources.
In addition, CTG continued work with a number of NYS agencies.
We received funding from the NYS Office of Children and Family
Services as part of a multi-phase, multi-year project to assess the use
of mobile technologies in child protective service. CTG also used its
base funding to work on three separate projects 1) developing
recommendations for a statewide information technology governance
framework 2) developing guides to inform the use of social media tools
in government, and 3) hosting a series of knowledge sharing
workshops for state agencies on reporting requirements for the
American Reinvestment and Recovery Act.
