2015 Webinar Series
NASCA's next webinar will be April 23 at 3PM EST. You will hear about Ohio's  IT Optimization from Ohio's Department of Administrative Services Director, Robert Blair and Chief Information Officer, Stu Davis. You won't want to miss this webinar! 

After decades of decentralized IT management and spending, the state of Ohio began implementing an IT Optimization initiative to change the way the state does business. The main objective of IT Optimization was to lower the state's total IT costs and redirect those savings into improved IT services and into programs and services that benefit Ohio's citizens and businesses. 

Join the webinar to see how the process is going, lessons learned and next steps. A calendar request was sent to NASCA members. Contact Shawn Vaughn if you didn't receive the meeting request.

Centennial Whitepaper

Job Order Contracting Responds Performs and Builds


"Participating in NASCA last year was not only educational for Welltok, but we made great connections too. It's a valuable forum for members to learn from each other and collaborate with the state administrators that are working side by side with the governors to drive change. Through relationships like the one we had with Kathy Nesbitt in Colorado, we were able to build a really successful health engagement program for the State of Colorado employees. We look forward to partnering with other states to replicate this success." - Scott Rotermund, Co-Founder and Chief Growth Officer, Welltok
