E-Government Survey Results

Monday, July 1, 2002

The Rural Internet Access Authority, as stated in Session Laws 2000-149, is charged with providing high speed Internet access to every North Carolinian at reasonable rates as well as ensuring that Internet access is made available throughout the state. In conjunction with the Center for Public Technology, the Rural Internet Access Authority initiated a local government survey. The survey gathered relevant information and developed a benchmark of existing technology within local governments, portraying what is currently being provided to citizens and businesses. The results of this current state assessment tell us that we have made progress, but not yet enough in enabling local governments to communicate and conduct/process transactions with our citizens and businesses. The survey gathered data on the infrastructure, equipment, personnel capacity and applications that currently exist to support e-government and the use of information technology in government, particularly web-based Internet applications.
