The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) launched its Cross-Jurisdictional Collaboration Working Group in 2012 and re-chartered it in 2013 in order to explore and learn about effective collaboration and critical success factors in state and local government, with the strategic intent to discover best or emerging practices to develop guidance for creating and sustaining effective intra- and inter-jurisdictional collaborative arrangements. This document focuses on the work of this group and results from a 2011 survey report that addresses the priority challenges and opportunities associates with consolidation, collaboration, clout and change.
