Announcing the NIEF QuickStart Program

Together with the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) and the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO), NIEF is pleased to announce the NIEF QuickStart program.

Under this program, GTRI and NASCIO will select a small group of government agencies from among the U.S. State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial (SLTT) government community, and GTRI will assist selected agencies by facilitating and shepherding them through NIEF’s formal on-boarding process. It is expected that the selected on-boarding projects will be completed in approximately twelve (12) months.

Agencies interested in submitting a readiness assessment to be considered for participation in the NIEF QuickStart Program can go to and submit an assessment profile online.
