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 workers in the ICT arena.
“Government agencies are often quiet achievers,” minister Gray said. “There are many 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 (AESDT) on Tuesday 15 March 2011.
