County nationally recognized for digital innovation, collaboration

Clackamas County has been recognized nationally for its digital practices among counties.

The Center for Digital Government (CDG), an institute focused on technology policy and best practices in government, along with the National Association of Counties (NACo), have released the results of their joint annual Digital Counties Survey.

Clackamas County placed fifth in the nation among counties with a population of 250,000 – 499,999.

Survey results are based on certain online characteristics that are evident in counties’ digital presences. These include, but are not limited to: transparency, mobile applications, engagement/social media, and collaboration.

“Digital counties are leveraging technology to improve the ways they conduct business and engage with citizens in increasingly innovative and exciting ways,” said CDG Executive Director Todd Sander. “The Center for Digital Government congratulates this year’s winners for their work to reduce costs, encourage citizen engagement, increase efficiencies and proactively address citizen expectations.”

“As technology continues to grow in all facets of our lives, county governments are adapting and innovating,” said NACo Executive Director Matthew Chase. “The Digital Counties Survey spotlights how counties deploy technology to enhance services and benefit residents while being responsible stewards of taxpayer resources.”

Clackamas County’s website attracted 2,152,863 visits during the last 12 months.

Clackamas County’s Facebook page has more than 5,000 followers, which is the most of any Oregon county’s primary Facebook presence.
