New Jersey Office of Information Technology
State Broadband Capacity Building:
This project will establish a broadband program office within the State of New Jersey’s Office of Information Technology. The office will be primarily responsible for coordinating statewide broadband activity, identifying gaps in broadband usage and developing recommendations for accelerating broadband adoption.
In collaboration with NJEDGE, a non-profit educational organization serving New Jersey, the state Office of Information Technology will provide training, consulting, online resources, and technology sustainability planning to small businesses and higher education institutions. This technical assistance will support broadband-based delivery of curriculum and e-commerce development.
Data Collection, Integration, and Validation:
This project was originally funded for broadband planning activities and two years of data collection. In September of 2010, this project was amended to extend data collection activities for an additional three years and to identify and implement best practices.
