Looking to the Future (2019-...)
While we look back, we have also been planning an exciting new future. The central administration at the University at Albany has recently committed to “promote” the Center, if you will, into a full research institute. This new designation presents opportunities to expand our research, areas of expertise, and also update the identity we present to the world. Therefore, starting in January 2019, we will be known as “CTG at UAlbany.” Even with a new status and name, what will not change, what will never change, is our dedication to improving government and public service through innovations in technology, policy, and management for years to come. - Theresa Pardo, CTG UAlbany Director
Since our inception many organizations have emerged stating that they "transform government" but we are dedicated to working with government (not for them) and really helping them as they make IT and data related investments. Our goal is to support them in their decision making. I think there will always be a future for an organization that listens and responds. - Meghan Cook, CTG UAlbany Program Director
