Nevada County Takes Second Place in National Digital County Survey
Published on: 7/17/2012 12:00 AM

DigCount_Wnr12_CMYK.gifThe 2012 Digital Counties Survey award winners were named Monday, July 16, by the Center for Digital Government (CDG), a national research and advisory institute focused on IT policies and best practices in state and local government.

Conducted by CDG and Government Technology — divisions of parent company e.Republic Inc. — in partnership with the National Association of Counties, the survey evaluates entrants on their ability to demonstrate successful outcomes through the strategic use of technology.

Ten winners were named in each of four population-based categories. The winning counties carried out strategies with measurable benefits that aligned with county priorities. Successful programs also showed progress over the previous year, utilized innovative solutions, and revealed a commitment to collaboration within and outside of their organization. The self-reported survey is judged by a panel of experts.

“This year, counties are focused on saving money where they can by simplifying their information technology infrastructure and sharing systems with other governments,” Center for Digital Government Executive Director Todd Sander said. “Many of them have found ways to provide better information security, transparency and citizen engagement with innovative uses of social media and advanced decision support tools.”
