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. Please contact Caroline Carlson if you have an interest in learning more about the latest NCSL Foundation partnership.
Through this partnership, lawmakers will have a unique opportunity to 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, this project will develop practical solutions that can then be implemented. Although Washington is mired in political gridlock, state lawmakers continue to demonstrate that they are willing and able to enact innovate public policy. NCSL’s new Jobs Partnership is an important step in that direction.
