From the Digital Government Web Site:
A recently released national survey ranks Michigan first in the nation in the use of information technology to transform and improve government. The Digital States Survey, conducted by the Center for Digital Government in conjunction with Government Technology magazine, is the nation‚Äôs most recognized and respected study of information technology in all 50 states. The survey is conducted every two years and Michigan retained its number one ranking from the previous survey taken in 2004.
From the Official State of Michigan Web Site:
Digital States is the nation’s original and only sustaining survey of state governments’ use of technology in serving the citizen. The all-new 2006 Digital States Survey provides a benchmark for the next generation of digital service delivery and reflects contemporary citizen expectations and the technologies used to meet them.
In June, the Center invited all state governors and their chief information officers to participate in the revised 2006 Digital States Survey. With more than 70 measurements in four broad areas — service delivery, architecture and infrastructure, collaboration, and leadership — this year’s survey is the first report on the transition of states to digital government since the 2004 elections.
