IT Professional of the Year

The IT Professional of the Year Award recognizes outstanding individuals who advances and supports the use of technology within the government workplace to improve the efficiencies in government and services to the people. Individuals will be evaluated based upon the following criteria:

  • Service to the IT community
  • Contributions to Professional Organizations

IT Rookie of the Year

This award recognizes a relative newcomer to the field of IT. The criteria are the same as the IT Professional of the Year, with the added requirement that recipients have five or fewer years of IT experience if under 30, or two or fewer years of IT experience if over 30. The birthday cutoff for age is July 1.

IT Projects of the Year

New this year, Mi-GMIS has expanded our IT Project of the Year Award, so your organization has a great chance of winning.

There will now be two awards for each of the four member size categories recognized by GMIS International. There will be one award for the best internally-focused project, and one award for the best externally-focused project in each of the size categories. Internally-focused projects are those that are meant to improve the organization itself. Examples would include but not be limited to IT security projects, new solution implementations, or strategy generation. Externally-focused projects are those intended to directly benefit the community. Examples here would be apps offered to the public allowing increased access to services, public WiFi, or making staff available to help with citizen technology challenges. Criteria examined will include:

  • Team collaboration
  • Organization / Citizen impact
  • New skill development
  • Met schedule and budget
  • Problem solving or proactive
  • Rating of the project by its beneficiaries
  • Shareability of the project or its result

If you don't know your organization size category, don't worry; we'll match nominations to GMIS International size categories.
