The Center for Technology in Government (CTG), through the Using Information in Government (UIG) program, has worked with New York State agency project teams and partners from the public, private, and academic sectors to identify benefits and strategies for integrating and using information for program planning, evaluation, and decision making. The policy, management, and technology issues identified through our work with agency teams were shared with the public in a series of seminars focused on increasing the value of information to government programs.
Dealing with Data, the first seminar in the series, was held in February 1999. It covered a variety of data issues. The report summarizes the presentations and panel discussions on data quality management, data tools and techniques, long term maintenance and preservation, and real life experiences with data issues.
