E-Government Initiatives


The County’s award winning e-Government program addresses the digital divide for our constituents and businesses through multiple access channels and has been successful in creating a "Government without Walls, Doors or Clocks". The e-Government program utilizes multi-channel service delivery via the County's Web site, Interactive Voice Response (IVR), mobile access and a Cable TV government access channel. Fairfax County's "Contact Us" mobile  application, provides access to the County’s phone directory and email contact links through wireless devices such as PDAs or cellular phones. Citizens can "Search by Name" or view an "Alphabetical" list of all County phone numbers. The application also allows users to contact agencies via email or phone depending on the mobile device's capabilities. The mobile application provides patrons with appropriately formatted information in a timely manner. 

Using these service delivery channels, the County provides business transactions and information to our citizens, businesses and to all that are interested in Fairfax County. These initiatives comprise a multi-faceted strategy with a single goal: utilize the benefits of emerging technologies to extend and expand the ability of government to provide information and services to County residents, businesses, civic groups and other interested parties.
