Transcript of MnCCC

Established in 1978, Minnesota Counties Computer Cooperative (MnCCC) works with all Minnesota Counties as a joint powers organization facilitating services and training, providing software and other cost-effective measures to substantially reduce technology costs for counties, cities, and agencies.
MnCCC's Mission
MnCCC provides an opportunity, through our joint powers agreements with counties (and cities and agencies), to collaborate on software solutions. We have software user groups that work together to provide Minnesota specific software for use in county departments.

Some groups own and manage their software; other groups are using and off-the-shelf software that has been customized for Minnesota.
What do we do?
MnCCC Board is made up of four officers, four region representatives and one IT representative. The Board meets the second Thursday each month at MnCCC's office.
MnCCC Board
MnCCC provides services to our user groups in a collaborative manner and to reduce costs, work, and risk to our membership while maintaining a sustainable joint powers organization.

MnCCC's Property Information User Group (PIUG) works with a variety of vendors that help provide valuable GIS and CAMA data to both the county staff in various departments and to the public. Map layers, photos, images, and data are used to create a rich picture of the county and all of its data.

MnCCC’s Information Services Support Group (ISSG) members are IT, MIS, IS managers and staff throughout the state. This group provides an amazing pool of resources! We share knowledge, assist each other on software and hardware challenges, and work together to find cooperative solutions.

Minnesota Statutes
Subdivision 1.Agreement. Two or more governmental units, by agreement entered into through action of their governing bodies, may jointly or cooperatively exercise any power common to the contracting parties or any similar powers, including those which are the same except for the territorial limits within which they may be exercised. The agreement may provide for the exercise of such powers by one or more of the participating governmental units on behalf of the other participating units. The term "governmental unit" as used in this section includes every city, county, town, school district, independent nonprofit firefighting corporation, other political subdivision of this or another state, another state, federally recognized Indian tribe, the University of Minnesota, the Minnesota Historical Society, nonprofit hospitals licensed under sections 144.50 to 144.56, rehabilitation facilities and extended employment providers that are certified by the commissioner of employment and economic development, day and supported employment services licensed under chapter 245D, and any agency of the state of Minnesota or the United States, and includes any instrumentality of a governmental unit. For the purpose of this section, an instrumentality of a governmental unit means an instrumentality having independent policy-making and appropriating authority.
...in other words, MnCCC is formed under a Minnesota Statute as a joint powers. MnCCC members, that are counties, cities, state agencies, and nonprofits, that can join together to create a legal entity for the purpose of contracting.
What is a Joint Powers Organization?
What is the difference between voting and nonvoting members?
Voting members belong to three or more user groups.

For example, if a county is a member of the CHS User Group, Corrections User Group, and ISSG, they would be a voting member. If a county belongs only to CHS, they would be a member of a user group and have voting rights in the user group, but not at the MnCCC Membership Meetings.
