Montgomery County Earns First Place in Nation in the 2018 Digital Counties Survey
The Center for Digital Government (CDG) and the National Association of Counties (NACo) declared Montgomery County as one of five first-place winners in their respective category of the 15th anniversary Digital Counties Survey. Montgomery County won under the “One Million or More Population” category. The County is the first four-time winner of this annual competition and is the only County to be ranked in the top 10 since the survey’s inception in 2003.
The survey, conducted by the CDG, in partnership with NACo, identifies the best technology practices among U.S. counties, including initiatives that streamline delivery of government services, encourage open data, collaboration and shared services, enhance cybersecurity and contribute to disaster response and recovery efforts.
