Digital States Survey 2022 Results Announced


The Center for Digital Government Recognizes Exceptional Use of Technology to Improve Public Services

CHARLESTON, W. Va. – The Center for Digital Government (CDG) has announced the results of its 2022 Digital States Survey, a biennial evaluation of the information technology (IT) practices of all 50 states.

Since its inception 25 years ago, this biennial e-survey has helped benchmark state government use of digital technologies to improve service delivery, increase capacity, streamline operations, and ​reach policy goals. The survey assigns a letter grade based on quantifiable results.

West Virginia has achieved an overall grade of B in the 2022 Digital States Survey. The grade of “B” reflects a state whose technology leaders are using appropriate, consistent, and standard good government practices in all aspects of state operations, governance, and administration.​

In the 2022 Category Awards, West Virginia received third place for exemplary work in Connected Infrastructure, which recognizes that the state has provided comprehensive Information Technology enabled services – computing, storage, and networks.

“Technology is now woven into the fabric of government services and operations,” said West Virginia Chief Technology Officer Josh Spence. “The Digital States Survey highlights the best and emerging technology practices, creating opportunities for sharing and collaboration among the states. The Justice Administration is committed to effectively leveraging technology in the delivery of government services.”​
