IAC Opens Nominations for 2007 Excellence.gov Awards
The Industry Advisory Council’s (IAC) Collaboration and Transformation Shared Interest Group (SIG) opened nominations for the 2007 Excellence.Gov Awards. These awards highlight the very best government IT projects, culminating in an annual award ceremony and an award-winner panel discussion.
Building upon the charter to recognize and expand results-oriented electronic government, the theme for this year’s Excellence.Gov Awards is “Leveraging Technology to Enhance Collaboration,” focusing on how government organizations use innovative technologies to achieve their objectives and work together more effectively. Some examples might include collaboration for:
Improved citizen impact
Enhanced business operations
Protecting the homeland
Shared mission delivery
Implementing Line of Business initiatives
“The Excellence.Gov Awards have proven to be a great way to recognize government teams for their successful work,” said David G. Cassidy, Chair of this year’s awards and Vice President at TCG. “This year’s topic of ‘collaboration’ is a natural progression from the ‘information sharing’ theme of 2006, and is particularly timely as our military and government focus more on the need to work across organizational boundaries to achieve greater successes.”
Any government IT project can be nominated through the closing date of December 4th. Nomination information is available on the ACT/IAC web site, at www.actgov.org.
Excellence.Gov Award winners are selected by a panel of judges representing both government and industry. The mission of IAC is to foster improved communication and understanding between government and industry. In support of this mission, the Collaboration and Transformation SIG provides a forum for government and industry to identify, explore and address issues that promote the implementation of IT-enabled government change that will benefit society.
