Resources for Faculty

Below please find more detailed resources for faculty.

The Center for Technology in Government (CTG)
University at Albany, State University of New York

The mission of the Center for Technology in Government at the University at Albany is to foster public sector innovation, enhance capability, generate public value, and support good governance. We carry out this mission through applied research, knowledge sharing, and collaborative problem solving at the intersection of policy, management, and technology. The results generated by each project add to a growing knowledge base designed to support the work of both government professionals and academic researchers. Our guides, reports, and tools are freely available on: www.ctg.albany.edu

The Center for Information Management, Integration and Connectivity (CIMIC)
Rutgers, State University of New Jersey
The mission of CIMIC includes the following activities: explore, develop and conduct applied scientific research on issues related to Digital Libraries and Electronic Commerce; identify, develop, and demonstrate new applications and be instrumental in the transfer of technology to sponsor organizations; foster a multi-disciplinary research program that brings together researchers from a diverse set of areas including computer information systems, computer science, environmental science, healthcare, marketing, finance and economics, and industrial engineering, and utilize results and resources of the other centers located within as well as outside Rutgers; sponsor technical workshops and seminars that address timely research challenges; and serve the community through outreach activities by providing education and mentor programs for inner city youth.
 
The Center for Technology and Information Policy
Maxwell School, Syracuse University
The Maxwell School's Center for Technology & Information Policy (CTIP) is a multidisciplinary research program that provides institutional support and facilities for collaborative research on the technical dimension of public policy. The program is affiliated with Syracuse University's L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science and specializes in evaluation of technology and R&D policy; use of technical information and computers in public policy making and public management; computer-based technology for analysis forecasting, assessment, and technology transfer; and the role of technical information in policy making and public management. The Technology & Information Management Policy Program of the Maxwell School's Department of Public Administration is the curriculum counterpart of the technology center's research apparatus. Masters and doctoral students in public administration are offered courses in Technology Development, Research and Development Policy, Science and Technology Policy, Environment and Resources Policy, Public Management Computer Information Systems, and a Research Workshop in Technology Policy.
 
The Centre for Electronic Governance
Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad
The Centre for Electronic Governance (CEG) was set up at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIMA) in October 1999. CEG was established by IIMA for an initial period of three years (Phase I) with the support of four leading IT companies – Oracle India Pvt. Ltd, HP (formerly Compaq) India Pvt. Ltd, SCO India and CMC Ltd. During Phase I, the objectives of CEG comprised identifying applications for developing 'Proof-of-Concept' prototypes, and disseminating knowledge and skills for successful implementation of e-Governance amongst the bureaucracy and other stakeholders. After the success achieved in Phase I, CEG decided to continue its research activities for three more years (Phase II, up to October 2005) with its own resources. In Phase II, CEG has been focusing on knowledge dissemination activities and developing its portal as a knowledge resource on e-Governance in India. In addition to the past activities rooted in the Centre’s main objectives, research on frameworks for evaluating e-Governance readiness, project proposals, and other related activities are undertaken.
 
The Digital Government Research Center
University of Southern California
GRC is a joint research center of the Information Sciences Institute at the University of Southern California and the Department of Computer Science at Columbia University. The center focuses on four types of activity: 1) Information Technology research: development of advanced information systems to address critical areas of need for government agencies and citizens in online transactions; 2) Digital Government community building: organization of the annual dg.o conferences that bring together staff from federal, state, and local government, researchers in IT and social sciences, and companies with a commercial interest in Digital Government; 3) Production of the monthly newsmagazine dgOnline; 4) NSF Digital Government program growth: organization of and participation in workshops that help develop new directions for NSF's Digital Government program.
 
The Institute for Development Policy and Management (IDPM)
University of Manchester, United Kingdom
The Development Informatics Group of the IDPM seeks to develop and disseminate theoretically-grounded and practice-oriented understanding of information and ICTs in socio-economic development. It focuses particularly on developmental issues concerned with the IT sector, ICT policy, e-governance, e-business and e-learning.
 
The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO)
NASCIO represents state chief information officers and information resource executives and managers from the 50 states, six U. S. territories, and the District of Columbia. State members are senior officials from any of the three branches of state government who have executive-level and statewide responsibility for information resource management. Representatives from federal, municipal, and international governments and state officials who are involved in information resource management but do not have chief responsibility for that function participate in the organization as associate members. NASCIO's mission is to foster government excellence through quality business practices, information management, and technology policy.
 
The National Center for Digital Government
Center for Public Policy and Administration, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
The National Center for Digital Government (NCDG) is based at the University of Massachusetts Amherst's Center for Public Policy and Administration, and was established with the support of the National Science Foundation. NCDG's mission is to build global research capacity, to advance practice, and to strengthen the network of researchers and practitioners engaged in building and using technology and government.  The goal of NCDG is to apply and extend the social sciences for research at the intersection of governance, institutions and information technologies.
 
The National Science Foundation Division of Information and Intelligent Systems (IIS) supports a variety of science and engineering research and education projects develop new knowledge about the integration and co-evolution of social and technical systems including digital government. Digital government research focuses on the intersections of computer and information sciences, related social, political, and behavioral sciences, and the problems and missions of government agencies.
 
The Program on Networked Governance
John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University

The traditional notion of hierarchical, top down, government has always been an imperfect match for the decentralized governance system of the US. However, much of what government does requires co-production of policy among agencies that have no formal authority over each other, fundamentally undermining the traditional Weberian image of bureaucracy. Networked governance refers to a growing body of research on the interconnectedness of essentially sovereign units, which examines how those interconnections facilitate or inhibit the functioning of the overall system. The objective of this program is two-fold: (1) to foster research on networked governance and (2) to provide a forum to discuss the challenges of networked governance.

The World Bank assists client countries in building the necessary institutional capability for developing electronic government applications towards improving government performance and accountability, particularly in the delivery of public services. The E-Government Group leverages the World Bank’s extensive experience with IT components within its lending programs, its technical resources from the Information Solutions Group (ISG) and a growing body of knowledge on e-government.
