Falls Church, Va.—IBA teams supporting the Defense Health Services Systems Program Executive Office win honorable mention in the 2014 Government Computer News Outstanding Information Technology Achievement in Government awards competition. The teams were lauded for successfully delivering the National Intrepid Center of Excellence Continuity Management Tool project for the Defense Health Agency. The award was presented during the Oct. 14 GCN Gala in Tysons Corner.
Accepting the award on behalf of DHSS from IBA were Mike Walker, Laura Jo Tozzi, and Regina Girouard. The award nomination describes how IBA’s engineering, requirements, testing, and program management staff supporting DHSS helped identify a “no-cost” solution to relaunch NCMT by using existing IT assets within DHA that resulted in a $50 million dollar cost avoidance for the federal government.
In announcing the honor, GCN Editor in Chief Paul McCloskey said, “Over the years, the GCN Awards have come to symbolize the best and most notable IT accomplishments in advancing the work of government agencies. This year’s projects were selected from over 140 nominations submitted to GCN, based on the degree to which a given IT project improved an agency’s ability to operate more efficiently or serve the public more effectively. A distinguished panel of judges made up of current government IT officials also looked for innovation and technology leadership in selecting this year’s winners.”
