Republic’s Center for Digital Government and Digital Communities Program has announced the top-ranked digital city governments in the 10th anniversary Digital Cities Survey. The survey focused on results achieved by cities, via the use of technology, in operating efficiencies and realizing strategic objectives despite current fiscal constraints.
“Cities that are investing in technology are capturing cost savings that are critical to continuity of operations and their ability to meet higher demand for services,” said Todd Sander, director of Digital Communities. “The highest-ranking cities in the survey showed great strides in consolidating, enabling shared services, government transparency and communications interoperability. We applaud these innovators as they work in the spirit of collaboration to provide extraordinary value to constituents despite budget setbacks.”
Congratulations to the City of Irving, taking 4th place in the 125,000 – 249,99 population classification! Irving was the highest ranking city in Texas across all categories. Other who made the list included: Fort Worth, San Antonio, El Paso and Flower Mound. The survey was open to all U.S. cities with a population of 30,000 or more.
This year’s survey was underwritten by AT&T; CDW-G; Hyland Software, developers of OnBase; and Symantec. The Center for Digital Government is a national research and advisory institute on information technology policies and best practices in state and local government
