Day two of the Making Mobile Gov challenges rollout is about the mobile budget.
Mobile projects–like all projects–are subject to available budget. Efforts can be delayed, cut-back or stopped without proper funding. It’s an even bigger challenge since mobile efforts are new and government budget cycles are long.
Mobile costs can include data cleanup, mobile infrastructure development, design, programming and testing for multiple devices, ongoing maintenance of systems, security, strategy development, and staffing.
The agencies we talked to have experienced different challenges–and we want to surface your experiences, too.
Add your experiences to Discuss: Mobile Budget and weigh in.
