government to government (G2G)

Government to government (G2G) is the electronic sharing of data and/or information systems between government agencies, departments or organizations. The goal of G2G is to support e-government initiatives by improving communication, data access and data sharing.

Several factors are driving local and federal governments to institute G2G initiatives. One of theme is federal government legislation such as the Open Government Directive. G2G initiatives are also being driven by budgets and funding. By sharing information and systems, governments are able to reduce IT costs government offices can be more efficient and streamline procedures, allowing citizens to access information over the Internet.  They may also qualify for grant funding, depending on the project. An example of a successful G2G project is the Northeast Gang Information System (NEGIS). NEGIS is used by states in the northeast to share information about street gangs, including gang-related activities and gang intelligence. The system connects all the state police departments of the participating states, and the police departments transmit the collected information to their states’ other law enforcement and public service agencies.
