It is my pleasure to open the nomination period for the Excellence in eGovernment Awards, Government 2.0 Innovator Award and the ICT Professional of the Year Award for 2011. These Awards promote excellence in the use of information and communications technology (ICT) by government, acknowledge outstanding initiatives in eGovernment and recognise the achievements of our colleagues in the ICT arena.

Some great nominations were received last year and we are looking forward to a similar or even better response this year. The Excellence in eGovernment Awards covers separate Category Awards in the following:

  • Applications Development
  • Geospatial
  • Government 2.0 (Gov 2.0)
  • Project Management
  • Service Delivery

There are also two Awards that recognise individual and team achievements:

Government agencies are often quiet achievers.  There are a lot of people who would love to hear about what you are doing - often we are all trying to solve similar issues – but we can’t share that information if nobody else knows.  So please consider sharing what you’ve been doing with the rest of us and nominate for this year’s Awards. In the spirit of Gov 2.0 we are also inviting community members to nominate agencies and individuals for the Government 2.0 and Government 2.0 Innovator Awards.  If you know of an agency or government official who is a champion for Gov 2.0, we want to know about them. Nominations close at 6.00 pm (AEDST) on Tuesday 29 March 2011. Good luck – I hope to see you at this year’s Awards presentation at the CeBIT ICT Celebration dinner on Wednesday, 1 June 2011 at the Sydney Convention Centre Darling Harbour.
