NYSAC IT Task Force Report Reflects Top IT Concerns Facing Counties
In 2021, the Board of Directors for the New York State Association of Counties created the NYSAC IT Task Force to serve as an advisory group to discuss major information technology (IT) and data issues that impact the operations and governance of counties.
NYSAC this week published the initial Task Force report, featuring the top technology challenges facing counties, including workforce, cybersecurity, IT governance, intergovernmental service sharing, funding and grants, and transitioning to dot gov.
The mission of the IT Taskforce is to work cooperatively to provide advice, strategic direction, collaboration, and insights for the safe, secure, and effective use of information technology in counties (and all governments) across New York State. Some of the members of the Task Force are from county IT departments, others represent cross-functional roles in your counties. All have an interest in and a concern about the role that information technology and systems play in the business of county government. IT is the backbone of the back-office operations of every county department across the state.
If you or a member of your county is interested in joining the NYSAC IT Task Force, please fill out and submit a nomination form.
The next meeting of the IT Task Force will be held at the NYSAC Legislative Conference on Monday, February 26th at 2 p.m. The meeting is open to all conference attendees.
