Federal agencies have long been in the forefront when it comes to creative use of information technology. Yet many of their achievements have gone unrecognized.

They were the best of 160 projects competing for the honor by demonstrating that they had directly aided in the missions of their agencies through boosting efficiency and effectiveness, lowering costs, and/or improving service to citizens, through original uses of information technology.

If your agency has a leading-edge information technology project, consider submitting a nomination. For nomination forms, or more information, send an e-mail message to or write to Awards, 4610 Tournay Road, Bethesda, Md. 20816.
