Jana Hrdinová, Natalie Helbig, and Anna Raup-Kounovsky
August 2009

Over the last fifteen years, the role of IT in state government has grown in prominence, which has drawn attention to how IT is governed at the state level. This report reviews enterprise IT governance arrangements in thirteen states (California, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia). This resource provides one of the most comprehensive reviews of public sector IT governance currently available.

Governments, at all levels, continue to face pressure to contain costs and demonstrate performance. Traditionally, IT operations evolved based on agency missions and existing ways of making decisions about IT. However, as programmatic boundaries become less fixed and technologies change, new ways of organizing across organizations and program areas are needed to realize the value from information resources and IT investments. This briefing paper presents lessons learned drawn from information collected from a total of 18 states as well as from the work with New York State on the Creating an Enterprise IT Governance Framework for New York State Government project.

Couture Governance - Like high fashion design, IT governance gets its value from a custom fit.
Couture Governance - Like high fashion design, IT governance gets its value from a custom fit.
Theresa A. Pardo and Jana Hrdinová,
Public CIO; June 2009

Reduce costs, increase transparency and improve service quality -- these goals are on the minds of CIOs across the country. Consolidation, centralization and integration are recognized strategies for achieving these goals, but as CIOs are learning, these strategies require coordinated action across organizations' boundaries. Making IT decisions in this way, through coordinated action, often requires new IT governance capability.


IT Governance: A Threshold Capability for Creating Government Interoperability.
IT Governance: A Threshold Capability for Creating Government Interoperability.
Theresa A. Pardo and G. Brian Burke
A CTG White Paper; Forthcoming

Interoperability in the governmental context enables partner organizations to share information and other resources as necessary to serve the needs of citizens and society. Creating this interoperability requires government leaders to take responsibility for improving the capabilities of government agencies to effectively partner with other agencies and governments as well as the private sector, non-profit groups, and research institutions. This paper will outline the key elements, as well as the context characteristics of greatest interest in governance design and implementation decision making. The paper will present a set of strategies for identifying and assessing current governance capabilities and using that assessment data to guide new government investments in capability development.
