Gloucester’s IT department receives national award
Gloucester County’s Information Technology (IT) Department received a 2014 Digital Counties Survey award from the Center for Digital Government (CDG) and the National Association of Counties (NACo). Gloucester placed sixth in counties with a population less than 150,000.
According to Gloucester’s IT director Scott Varner, the focus of this year’s survey was evaluating the results achieved by using technology in the areas of cybersecurity, shared services, budget and cost control, mobility/mobile applications, disaster recovery, transparency, virtualization, broadband and connectivity, and governance.
Gloucester County’s IT department has been awarded this honor seven times.
“Congratulations to this year’s winners for their dedication to public service and forging partnerships that proactively address rapidly changing citizen demands and expectations,” said Center for Digital Government’s Executive Director Todd Sander. “Their ability to be continually innovative in an ever changing technology landscape is admirable and commendable.”
“Counties across the country are using technology to enhance services, maximize efficiency and save money,” said NACo Executive Director Matthew D. Chase. “The Digital Counties Survey recognizes counties’ best practices and effective uses of technology to better serve their communities.”
