  • Calling All Federal Government Innovators

    By NIC Inc. |
    • 62% of Federal managers report personal experience with tighter budgets.
    • 58% report budget cuts will be devastating to their agency’s mission.
    • 34% are looking for alternative funding solutions.

    MeriTalk, the go-to resource on government IT, conducted a survey of 200 federal government managers recently that uncovered some hope when it comes to dealing with budget cuts. There is a growing group of federal managers who identify themselves as ‘innovators,’ and are looking to those outside of government, as well as alternative funding solutions in order to continue to provide more services while spending less.

    NIC has proven through its work with the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration that no-cost eGovernment can work for the federal government. Industry is willing to pay a small efficiency fee in order to access information online, that otherwise would not be available to them.

    We encourage all federal government innovators to join the discussion about alternative funding solutions and how to survive the current state of trying to provide more services with fewer appropriated budget dollars.
