Governor McAuliffe Announces Governor’s Technology Award Winners

~ Projects honored at Commonwealth of Virginia Innovative Technology Symposium noted for innovation, efficient service ~

RICHMOND – Today, Secretary of Technology Karen Jackson and Chief Information Officer of the Commonwealth Nelson Moe presented the annual Governor’s Technology Awards on behalf of Governor Terry McAuliffe at a special ceremony at the Commonwealth of Virginia Innovative Technology Symposium (COVITS) in Richmond. Seventeen awards were presented in nine categories from state and local government and education.

“I want to congratulate this year’s award winners for their innovation and efforts to increase efficiency in government,” said Governor McAuliffe. “Every project honored today has used information technology (IT) to improve citizen service, through metrics, including decreased cost, faster response time or ease of completion. The Commonwealth has a bright future with talented groups like this continuing to improve government through technology.”

“Every year, our Virginia agencies and localities receive national recognition for their innovative use of IT,” said Secretary of Technology Karen Jackson. “The Governor’s Technology Awards give us a statewide view into this valuable work on behalf of our citizens.”

The Governor’s Technology Awards program recognizes public sector (IT) projects that have improved government service delivery and efficiency. Winners are determined by a panel of government IT experts.
