Gloucester was in the less than 150,000 population category. This is the sixth time the county’s IT department has received the award.
The focus of this year’s survey was evaluating the results achieved through the use of technology in the areas of adaptive leadership, computing, networking, applications, data and cyber security, governance, project management, funding, energy management, business continuity, disaster recovery, performance benchmark reporting, citizen engagement through a web presence, and innovation.
"Counties across the country are aligning technology initiatives with executive strategic priorities to provide vital cost savings and administrative efficiencies," said NACo executive director Matthew Chase. "The Digital Counties Survey identifies best practices and innovative uses of technology crucial with today’s constrained budgets to maintaining and even improving service levels."
