Federal Manager's Daily Report

The Industry Advisory Council’s eGov Shared Interest Group

and the Federal Chief Information Officers Council in


partnership with e-Gov have recognized five agencies for

what they say are exceptional projects crossing

organizational boundaries to simplify and unify cumbersome


The judges considered factors such as the maturity of the

project’s governance model, innovation, results, impact on

agency missions, and reproducibility, according to the

American Council for Technology, an organization promoting

IT in government.

The Small Business Administration’s BusinessLaw.gov got one

of the five “Excellence.gov” awards for streamlining new

business application processes and facilitating data

exchange between federal and state governments, something

credited with saving $500,000.

The Federal Technical Data Solution of the Department of

Defense’s Defense Information Systems Agency was also

recognized, for improving the efficiency, credibility and

effectiveness of acquisition and logistics support in

procurement processes, said ACT.

Other recipients include the Securities and Exchange

Commission, the Department of Health and Human Services

and the Department of Homeland Security.
