The Critical Role of Collaboration in Government

Collaboration has always been a part of doing business in the government.

County and city governments must work with state and federal agencies to implement programs. Cross-agency collaboration is critical for public safety, law enforcement, public health and other vital services that cross jurisdictions.

Government organizations need to adapt to new technologies that allow connecting with stakeholders, government contractors, private sector businesses and other agencies in innovative ways to better communicate.

Since 2011, membership for FEMA's National Preparedness Community has steadily increased, connecting more than 37,000 members, thanks to the implementation of a robust collaboration platform.
