The U.S. Department of Commerce recently announced that it will award a $39.2 million grant to GovNET, Inc. to build a statewide broadband network. The funding was awarded by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
GovNET is based in Scottsdale, a nearby suburb of Phoenix. The company will use the funding for a 5 SONET-ring microwave and fiber network meant to bring increased broadband capacity and Internet connectivity to all 15 counties throughout Arizona.
"Arizona's vast stretches of missing middle mile infrastructure may soon become a thing of the past," Gov. Jan Brewer said. "Not only will this project create Arizona jobs, the broadband capacity it brings will help with everything from enhancing rural schools and libraries to networking hospitals and healthcare providers.
"The network also allows for direct communication channels between multiple law enforcement agencies with the potential to improve interoperability issues along the border," she added.
NTIA asked governors from each state to submit comments about the broadband grant applications that would impact their own states. Brewer created the Arizona Broadband Advisory Committee to evaluate applications from Arizona.
That committee was made up of representatives from 10 different state agencies and was chaired by Chad Kirkpatrick, CIO and director of the Government Information Technology Agency.
"The results of this grant will bring high speed Internet connectivity to many underserved areas of the state," he said. "This is a great day for Arizona’s future."

The act would provide states, local governments, and community-based organizations with federal funding to save and create jobs through the retention, restoration and expansion of local community services.
"Nearly 100,000 Broward County residents are unemployed with thousands more under-employed or are long-term unemployed and don't show up in official unemployment statistics," Ilene Lieberman, Broward County Commissioner and chair of NACo's Large Urban County Caucus, said.
"Our county is facing a FY2010-11 budget deficit of $109 million," she continued. "This is on the heels of two previous years of shortfalls of $87 million and $90 million. Creating local jobs will stimulate local businesses and create more jobs in the local economy."
The National Association of Counties, U.S. Conference of Mayors, and National League of Cities are three of the largest organizations supporting the effort. The organizations recently released a joint study demonstrating the tough fiscal situation cities and counties are facing as a result of the recession.
The study found that those fiscal problems faced by local governments could result in the loss of 500,000 jobs throughout the country and cuts to necessary public services as cities and towns attempt to balance their budgets.
"Services to the public have been cut, county employees have been laid off or furloughed, and capital expenditures have been reduced," NACo President Glen Whitley said. "The Local Jobs for America Act will help ensure that our county employees who fight crime, protect our communities from fire and natural and man-made disasters, and teach our children are able to continue performing these vital functions."

The State of Oregon recently received the State of the Year Award from the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society for its leadership in health information technology.
"This award recognizes the important work Oregon has done to ensure all of our citizens' health records are available to them and their healthcare provider anytime, anywhere they are needed, and that those health records are confidential and secure at all times," Gov. Ted Kulongoski said. "For Oregonians, the impact will be higher quality care at a lower cost."
One example of the state's success is a recent survey from the Oregon Health Policy and Research office that found the state continues to lead the way when it comes to adopting and using electronic health records.
In fact, almost half of all clinicians throughout Oregon have electronic health records in their ambulatory practices, which is more than twice the national average. In addition, one-third of clinicians use fully-functional electronic health record systems, which is five times the national average.
"I am pleased to present the HIMSS State of the Year Award to the State of Oregon, in recognition of the Beaver State’s inspiring achievements in advancing health IT," HIMSS Board Member John Daniels said. "In less than one year, Oregon has leveraged public-industry-academic partnerships to effectively promote the use of health IT and Health Information Exchange."
Looking ahead, the Oregon Health Authority and Department of Human Services is working to promote new IT models that will provide more efficient healthcare services and programs. The state considers the use of health IT paramount in its effort to lower the cost and improve the quality of healthcare.

The U.S. Department of Labor recently awarded 22 grants worth more than $9 million from the Veterans' Workforce Investment Program. The funding will be used to provide green jobs training to thousands of veterans throughout the nation.
Among the funding was a $500,000 grant to the American GI Forum National Veterans Outreach Program in San Antonio. Overall, the grants will serve veterans in 19 states and the District of Columbia.
"(The funding will) give an estimated 4,000 veterans who have served our country the opportunity to receive training on and participate in the growing renewable energy economy," said Raymond Jefferson, assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Veterans’ Employment & Training Service.
Veterans who receive funding will have access to skills assessments, job counseling, labor market information, classroom or on-the-job training for green careers, skills upgrades and retraining, placement assistance, and follow-up services.
The funds were awarded on a competitive basis to state and local workforce investment boards, local public agencies and nonprofit organizations, including faith-based and community organizations.
The VETS helps veterans, reservists and National Guard members find jobs and benefits through existing programs, the coordination and merger of programs, and the implementation of new programs.
