2014 URISA Exemplary Systems in Government Awards Program Opens

Des Plaines, Ill., Jan. 8, 2014—The Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA) is accepting applications for its Exemplary Systems in Government (ESIG) Awards through April 11, 2014. The awards recognize exceptional achievements in the application of geospatial information technology that have improved the delivery and quality of government services. The award competition is open to all public agencies at the federal, state/provincial, regional and local levels.

Applications may be submitted in two categories, Single Process and Enterprise Systems:

•           SINGLE PROCESS SYSTEMS - Systems in this category are outstanding and working examples of applying information system technology to automate a specific SINGLE process or operation involving one department or sub-unit of an agency. The system application results in extended and/or improved government services that are more efficient and/or save money.

•           ENTERPRISE SYSTEMS - Systems in this category are outstanding and working examples of using information systems technology in a multi-department environment as part of an integrated process. These systems exemplify effective use of technology yielding widespread improvements in the process(es) and/or service(s) involved and/or cost savings to the organization.

Applications must be submitted by April 11, 2014.  Winners in each category will be recognized during GIS-Pro 2014: URISA's 52nd Annual Conference, September 8-11, 2014 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
