The 2015 Excellence in eGovernment Awards, ICT Professional of the Year Award, and the ICT Young Professional of the Year Award (the Awards) are now open for online nomination.

They give us yet another opportunity to say “Thank-you - great job!” and to celebrate our successes. Since the Awards were established in 2006 over four hundred nominations have been received. That level of nominations has been brought about because of CIO’s continued support. I’m sure that support will continue in 2015.
