Nominations sought for 2009 NASCIO awards
Successful state government information technology initiatives will be recognized later this year by the National Association of State Chief Information Officers.
The organization is seeking nominations for its 2009 Recognition Awards in the following categories:
• Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery
• Cross-Boundary Collaboration and Partnerships
• Data, Information and Knowledge Management
• Digital Government: Government to Business (G to B)
• Digital Government: Government to Citizen (G to C)
• Digital Government: Government to Government (G to G)
• Enterprise IT Management Initiatives
• Information Communications Technology (ICT) Innovations
• Information Security and Privacy
• IT Project and Portfolio Management
Successful information technology initiatives promote innovation, foster better government, and engage citizens. Emphasis will be placed on recognizing those information technology initiatives which exemplify best practices, support the public policy goals of state leaders, assist government officials to innovatively execute their duties, and provide cost-effective service to citizens.
Only one nomination per category is accepted from each state, so agencies and corporate partners who would like to nominate a Kentucky project should work with the Commonwealth Office of Technology (COT) to coordinate submissions.
Those nominations should be submitted to COT by May 15, 2009 to ensure duplicates are not submitted to NASCIO.
COT will then submit all entries to NASCIO by June 3, 2009.
The winning submissions will be selected by NASCIO over the summer and will be announced in the fall.
