"... government without walls, doors, or clocks"

The E-Government (EGov) initiative is a foundational program supporting the County’s goal of a "government without walls, doors, or clocks", consisting of many channels, policies and processes that integrate all platforms, both for internet as well as intranet. The strategy includes initiatives for expanding channels using new media capabilities and improving mobility, and citizen engagement and experience. The comprehensive strategy includes an inclusive set of channels, using enabling technology, policy and processes and the technical foundation for the County’s open government and transparency goals, as well as enabling County agencies’ operational efficiency, mobile workforce, emergency management, and Continuity of Operations Plans (COOP).
