It’s not yet clear what the 21st century’s government looks like, but citizen expectations seem set on something efficient, open, and transparent. Information technology holds the promise to give citizens many more channels with which to participate in governance on a continuous basis, not just once each election cycle.
This means that the onus is on the bureaucracy to pick the right places to engage citizens, and to provide them with the tools and information they need to contribute in meaningful ways.
At T4G, we have a demonstrated track record of giving citizens and governments new ways of working together for the common good: portals and collaboration solutions allow citizens to interact with civil servants and one another to satisfy their needs; business intelligence and strategy planning applications provide a level-set to talk about broad-reaching issues in standard, quantitative terms; and custom software development, integration, and user experience design means that each collection of solutions works together seamlessly through a friendly, functional interface.
As a collection of citizens ourselves, we have a vested interest helping governments be as accessible and responsive as possible. Making a government that’s equipped to thrive and support 21st century economic and social growth is everyone’s concern, and T4G is excited to be a part of the process.
