The NCSL Foundation is seeking partners for the second phase of a project on job creation and retention. Through this partnership, lawmakers will work directly with job creators to identify what it takes to create and retain jobs. By facilitating candid discussions between state policymakers and industry leaders, the project will develop practical solutions for implementation. Phase I of this project started the conversation. Now it’s time to take it to the next level—implementation. In Phase II, we will ask lawmakers to develop action plans.
New technologies provide a range of opportunities for governments to strengthen services to citizens, improve efficiency and security, and fight fraud and abuse. This latest public-private partnership will identify ways to improve government decision-making through improved business processes, effective data management, and the use of advanced analytics. The partnership will focus on programs that have the greatest potential to improve services, increase efficiency, and deliver cost savings and/or revenue return for governments. The NCSL Foundation is currently fundraising for this partnership. Hewlett-Packard has already committed to the partnership and there is quite a bit of interest from others in the IT and data analytics sector.
