  1. Bill Burgess Washington Liaison National States Geographic Information Council NSDI Future DirectionsFifty States InitiativeJune 23, 2005

  2. NSGIC was asked to take the lead GOAL - “By 2006, fifty state Coordinating Councils are in place and routinely contributing to the governance of the NSDI.”

  3. The Team • Ingrid Y. Bruce City of Rancho Cucamonga, CA • Bill Burgess NSGIC • John Clark General Services Administration • Stu Davis State of Ohio • Stu Kirkpatrick State of Montana • Tony LaVoi NOAA Coastal Services Center • Vicki Lukas USGS – Seattle, WA • Ingrid M. Milton USDA – Beltsville, MD. • Joe Sewash State of Tennessee • Gene Trobia State of Arizona • Larry Zink State of Nebraska

  4. We have common needs, but every state is different due to demographics, geography & “hot” issues

  5. Effective Statewide Councils Bring Consistency to the NSDI by… • serving as a focal point to aggregate the activities of all sectors into the NSDI in a functional way • providing incentives for non-federal entities to adopt appropriate national standards • working together on data production, infrastructure, and applications development to avoid duplication and waste • ensuring routine data access by all sectors Statewide does not mean State

  6. Purpose of the Action Plan • Identify the characteristics of effective statewide coordination and coordinating bodies • Outline steps that can be taken to repeat what works and to implement this initiative • Create a consistent network of Statewide Coordination Councils Please Note: “Statewide” includes Washington D.C. and the U.S. Territories

  7. Further Define NSGIC’s Nine Coordination Criteria • Full-time coordinator • Defined authority • Formal relationship with state CIO • Political or Executive Champion • NSDI and Clearinghouse responsibilities assigned • Ability to coordinate with local government, academia, the private sector, and other stakeholders • Sustainable funding • Contracting authority • Federal government works through Council

  8. Newly Defined Statewide Council Characteristics • Broad Representation • Municipal, County, State, Federal Field Offices, Academic, Business, Regional Govt., Utilities, Tribal, Non-Profit • Strategic Plan tied to NSDI • Business and Marketing Plan • Formal authorization including bylaws • Linkage to the nine coordination criteria • Funding to enable the operation Plans Must Meet Local Needs

  9. Statewide Coordination Council Activities • Data sharing agreements unless all stakeholders are in the public domain • Published list of data stewards/integrators for framework layers (minimum) • Framework metadata in clearinghouse • Functioning clearinghouse/inventory tool • Participation in The National Map • Adoption of appropriate standards

  10. Public Relations Materials are Necessary • “Classic” PR materials that can be “digested” in 30 seconds or less • Professional print, web and video resources to present non-technical information on value of enterprise architecture, coordination, etc. • Success stories

  11. Tasks WE Need to Accomplish • FGDC & NSGIC must engage NASCIO, NGA, WGA, NACo, NCSL, etc. to implement plan • Make representatives available for presentations • Federal grants conditioned on participation • Letters or “signs” of support from targeted Federal agencies to Governor, CIO, and other select agencies in each state

  12. Tasks WE Need to Accomplish • Replace previous Cooperating Partner agreements with new agreements conditioned on participation • Cooperating partners part of NSDI governance • NSGIC & FGDC promote use of this guidance for the Digital States Survey and other national survey efforts

  13. Other Pieces • Federal agencies must establish assistance programs that are targeted and tailored to local needs (One size DOES NOT fit all) • Measure improvement in statewide coordination activities (benchmark established)

  14. Other Measurements • Participation by local governments and others • Percentage of completion for framework that is contributed • Business plans that detail funding levels required • Number of Cooperating Partner Agreements • Number of Steward/Integrator Agreements • Clearinghouse Measures (automated)

  15. The Costs to Implement • Direct and Indirect Expenses • NSDI Liaison Staff • Base funding • States contribute a “home” to Liaison • Operating budget including travel • Funding to complete strategic and business planning process (~$40 to $50K per state) • Include contractor support when needed • PR Materials (~$50K)

  16. The FGDC Must Show Greater Resolve & Governance • Become the “single voice” for all Federal agencies • Help fund development of statewide councils by supporting strategic and business plan development • Provide access to grant programs only for those states with Cooperator Agreements and a good track record • Implement uniform grants and conditions based on Business Plan Needs

  17. PLEASE • Approve the Fifty States Initiative Action Plan • Assign the Responsibility for its Implementation • Keep it a High Priority • Help Fund the Critical Components
