GovWorks forms civic partnerships

GovWorks.com, which helps municipalities nationwide provide online information and services, announced last week that it has formed partnerships with the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) and the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) to work on new projects.

"GovWorks has the necessary technical know-how to make e-government a reality for many cities and counties across the country," said Vincent Cianci Jr., mayor of Providence, RI, and chairman of the USCM's Business Council.

The USCM (www.usmayors.org) is the official nonpartisan organization of cities with populations of 30,000 or more. ICMA (www.icma.org) is the professional and educational organization representing appointed managers and administrators in local governments throughout the world.

In addition to the national partnerships, govWorks also announced that the president of the National League of Cities, Charles Royer, has joined its board of advisors. Royer also is the director of the Institute of Politics at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government, and previously served as the mayor of Seattle.

New York City-based govWorks.com (www.govWorks.com) began testing its online networks for round-the-clock access to local governments this month, and will launch nationally later this year.
