The Goodhue County IT Dept. works with other Minnesota counties to share knowledge and share costs. This is done in many ways such as working with a neighboring county on a project or by membership in regional and statewide IT groups. Some of those groups include:
Minnesota Counties Computer Cooperative (MCCC) - provides services, software and support to reduce the cost of data processing for counties.
Minnesota County Technology Leadership Association (MNCITLA) - supports Minnesota county information technology leaders through enhanced communication efforts between counties and with state departments and other public sector organizations.
Southeast Minnesota Regional IT Directors Group - informal group that meets to discuss issues and share knowledge.
