INK Board Members

Enabled by KSA 74-9301 et seq., INK has continued that pioneering spirit by continuing to work with its state agency and local government partners to open electronic avenues to government information and building interactive services with which citizens, businesses and governments can interact with Kansas government.

Providing the oversight and direction of the portal are the INK Board of Directors. INK’s Board of Directors is a 9-member non-compensated Board consisting of cabinet secretaries and executive level membership from state and local units, elected officials, private sector executives and statewide user groups.

Executive Officers appointed by the Governor:

User Associations of Statewide Character:

  • Vacant
  • Vacant

The members of the INK Board of Directors provide the governance structure of the organization to best achieve the objectives of the state, INK and its partner organizations. The INK Board of Directors meets monthly and establishes all portal policies, transactional pricing, partner contractual agreements and oversees the work of the Network Manager. The development of the portal is contractually out-sourced to the Network Manager, a private service provider. This unique combination of private and public representation effectively places the governing control over the portal development with the data suppliers and the user groups who utilize the data.
