Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) June 22, 2012
Six federal projects were honored at the Project Management Excellence Awards held during the Government Information Technology Executive Council (GITEC) annual Summit. These competitive awards held annually are intended to recognize the achievements of outstanding government projects.
The federal projects and agencies honored were:
Bureau of Engraving and Printing for exceptional work on the BEP Enterprise project
U.S. Army for exceptional work on the Global Combat Support System-Army project
Department of Homeland Security for exceptional work on the National Information Exchange Model PMO project
General Services Administration for exceptional work on the Data.gov project
Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board for exceptional work on the Transparency and Accountability Platform project
State of Alaska for exceptional work on the State of Alaska Data Center Consolidation project
The Awards ceremony was held on Tuesday morning of the annual GITEC Summit, held May 20th through 22nd in Baltimore MD. Representatives from the project teams were recognized for their achievements by GITEC Vice-President and Summit Committee Chair Adriane Burton.
Ms. Burton commented that “the key to successfully implementing shared services is closely tied to great project management. This year, GITEC awarded some of government’s outstanding project management initiatives that advanced the use of shared services.”
This year there were eighteen submissions for awards of which the top six were selected. The awards are selected by a committee of government and industry representatives based on the metrics by which the project was deemed a success, the approach to secure the data, how the project supports the agency mission, best practices that were applied, and any innovative tools, methodologies, or processes that helped the project succeed.
GITEC strives to support federal projects missions and recognize their contributions to the IT community through the Project Management Excellence Awards.
Nominations for the 2013 Project Management Excellence Awards will be open in Fall 2012. Full details will be available at http://www.gitec.org.
