Survey of counties recognizes technology leaders
As part of the 2008 Digital Counties Survey conducted by the Center for Digital Government and the National Association of Counties (NACo), county officials responded to questions that included more than 100 measurements and data points about online service delivery, infrastructure, architecture and governance models. Dozens of counties were recognized as technology leaders in the survey findings; the list of award-winning counties is presented below.
“We are seeing county governments utilizing the efficiencies of technology to deliver services to Americans,” NACo Executive Director Larry Naake said. “Across a broad spectrum of service delivery needs and budgetary challenges, counties continue to develop improved service delivery options made possible by technology.”
