Utah.Gov Honored by Center for Digital Government
The Center for Digital Government announced the results of its 2018 Digital States Survey, a biennial evaluation of the technology practices of all 50 states.
The Digital States Survey evaluates states' use of technology to improve service delivery, increase capacity, streamline operations, and reach policy goals and assigns each state a grade based on quantifiable results
The survey evaluated states based on a set of criteria that included actions supporting state priorities and policies to improve operations or services, hard and soft-dollar savings/benefits, progress since the last survey, innovative and citizen-centric services, and effective collaboration. Those states receiving high marks demonstrated results across all criteria
In addition to its A grade Utah was also recognized with Digital States Category Awards for excellence in: Finance and Administration and Public Safety.*
"Survey results revealed cybersecurity, shared services, cloud computing and IT staffing remain the states' top four priorities; with business intelligence/analystics and citizen engagement moving up to fifth and sixth - and we have seen emerging best practices from the states' increased focus on citizen-centric and data-driven programs in the survey," said Teri Takai, executive director of the Center for Digital Government
