The Electronic Government Portal Advisory Board will meet from 9 to 11:45 a.m., Wednesday, March 13, at the Oregon State Library (Conference Room 103), located at 250 Winter St. NE in Salem. The meeting is open to the public, and may be attended in person or via the web; public comments will be taken from those attending in person and online. To join the meeting virtually, please see the instructions.  The legislature established the advisory board with enactment of ORS 276A.270-276. The board advises the State Chief Information Officer (CIO) on key decisions and strategic choices about how the state CIO manages and operates the state’s web portal services. The portal is the connection point for citizens to access state agency services and information on the internet. The board provides oversight of specific websites, services and online payments where agencies choose to utilize the state CIO’s E-Government Program as their service provider. With the board’s advice, the state CIO wants to make web portal services and their operation as effective as they can be for citizens to interact with state government.  The agenda and handouts will be posted on the advisory board’s website seven days prior to the meeting.
