Orange County Recognized as a CDG Digital Counties Survey Winner for Third Year
The Digital Counties Survey recognizes the best technology practices in U.S. counties, taking into consideration the way counties streamline government services, how they encourage collaboration and shared services, how they enhance cybersecurity and even how they reduce carbon emissions.
This is the third year in a row Orange County has been recognized for their efforts as an innovative county. This year Orange County was ranked seventh as counties with the best technology to enhance services for citizens.
“As technology continues to grow in all facets of our lives, country governments are adapting and innovating,” said NACo Executive Director Matthew Chase. “The Digital Counties Survey spotlights how counties deploy technology to enhance services and benefit residents while being responsible stewards of taxpayers resources.”
Orange County utilizes tools such as an online newsroom, push notifications from a mobile app and has a strong social media presence to keep Orange County citizens connected to their local government.
“Digital counties are leveraging technology to improve the ways they conduct business and engage with citizens in increasingly innovative and exciting ways,” said Todd Sander, executive director, CDG. “The Center for Digital Government congratulates this year’s winners for their work to reduce costs, encourage citizen engagement, increase efficiencies and proactively address citizen expectations.”
