DoD Recognizes Top Info Technology Performers

By Gerry J. Gilmore, American Forces Press Service.

Washington D.C. -- (AFPS) January 22, 2003 -- Top performers across the Defense Department's information technology realm recently took home DoD Chief Information Officer Award honors.

The CIO Awards program, now in its second year, recognizes outstanding achievement in at least one of seven key areas of information technology outlined in the Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996:

  • acquisition;
  • architecture and interoperability;
  • information assurance;
  • management and standards;
  • applications (technology or process);
  • capital planning and investment; and
  • information management/information technology work force.

Recognized achievements provide better service, cost-savings and significantly impact DoD's information technology mission.

Section 5123 of Clinger-Cohen (co-named after then-U.S. Sen. and former Defense Secretary William Cohen) requires DoD to leverage information technology and adopt related goals toward improving efficiency and effectiveness across the department.
