(VIENNA, VA., January 31, 2013)-FCW, published by 1105 Government Information Group, has announced the winners of the 24th annual Federal 100 Awards. The awards are presented to government, industry and academic leaders who have gone above and beyond to shape how the federal government manages, develops and acquires IT. The Federal 100 Awards Gala will be held March 20th at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Washington, D.C. The complete list of all 2013 Federal 100 winners can be found at fcw.com/fed100
"For the last 24 years, the Federal 100 program has recognized and paid tribute to exceptional leadership in the government market. We are proud to be a part of that tradition of excellence," said Anne A. Armstrong, President and Chief Content Officer at 1105 Government Information Group.
This year's winners include 22 from industry, two from academia, one from state government and 75 from the federal government-with 56 in civilian agencies, 15 in the defense sector and four from Capitol Hill. These individuals represent a cross-section of accomplishments, from guarding against the next wave of cyberattacks and hammering out interagency standards to deploying innovative systems for eRulemaking, mission-driven big data projects, accessible health data and shared services.
The 2013 Federal 100 Awards Gala will also include the presentation of two Eagle Awards-one each from government and industry-in recognition of outstanding leadership.
"The nominations we received this year show just how important the individual can be in bringing real change to federal technology. The 2013 winners faced persistent budget uncertainty, election-year politics, and IT challenges that have grown more complicated and faster-moving than ever. Yet time and again, these leaders solved the problems and got it done," said Troy K. Schneider, Executive Editor of FCW.
