Albany's Center for Technology in Government

The services project will deliver a World Wide Web starter kit, the Center for Technology in Government which is incorporating the America's Job Bank and SUNY projects in its Internet Technologies Testbed is a nonprofit research center that explores ways to solve "the practical problems of information management and service delivery in the public sector."

These CTG projects are just pieces of a larger effort with two parallel threads. CTG's Internet Services Testbed is a six-month study with six separate New York state agencies and one local government that examines the organizational issues presented by using the Internet to deliver services to citizens.

At the same time the Internet Technologies Testbed is looking at technical problems surrounding Internet security and the Web as a common user interface for New York government services.

The services project will deliver a World Wide Web starter kit prototype Web sites a list of recommended practices for New York state a cost-performance evaluation model for launching a Web site a public demonstration of lessons learned and an Internet Services Testbed report.

The technology project expects to provide a one-day presentation of current technologies and methods for addressing Internet security. On Nov. 20 at CTG's Albany N.Y. headquarters the project plans to provide a demonstration of the Web as a universal interface to New York state government services. Materials for both projects are available on CTG's Web site www.ctg.albany.edu.
