TechShare is committed to building technology solutions where counties control their own destiny. We think like counties because our priorities are set and driven by counties.
I don’t know that I’ve ever heard ‘no’ from TechShare; I can’t say the same about software vendors I’ve worked with before.
- Empower counties to control their destiny
- Software solutions developed at a fraction of the cost
- Intellectual property is owned by the counties
- Resources can be leveraged across counties
- Specialized solutions that meet county-specific needs
- Feedback from end users is used to increase functionality
What is the TechShare Program?
TechShare was established as a program of the Texas Conference of Urban Counties in 2004 to help counties implement advanced technology solutions. By collaborating, counties save money by sharing the cost of research and development. These projects can produce applications, systems, or other technology assets to enable more efficient processes for administration of justice. Counties outside of the program can “purchase” the software from the counties that originally funded development. The money used to develop the software is not retained by TechShare.
We are committed to building county-owned technology solutions to support local communities through cost-effective collaboration.
Who is eligible to join?
Any local government entity that can participate in an inter-local agreement under Texas law is eligible to participate in the TechShare program. When two or more Texas counties decide to develop or acquire a technology asset through TechShare, there’s an opportunity to recover some of the original funding when additional counties join the program.
