County Named a “Tech Savvy” Jurisdiction – One of Four in the US for 2014

The Public Technology Institute (PTI) has designated Montgomery County as a Tech Savvy County in 2014. The County is one of only four local governments in the nation -- and the only County in Maryland -- to receive the designation during 2014.

The County’s performance was assessed in several areas, including: Ethics, Performance Management, Communication and Collaboration, Professional Development, Strategic Planning, Cybersecurity; Commitment to Green Technology; Innovation and Adherence to Standards of Excellence.

PTI’s Local Government Tech Savvy Designation Award Program recognizes PTI-member local governments that meet a list of criteria where technology is used to address issues, current challenges and future opportunities.
