Focusing on six words: Helping government do its job better

Learning about more the 2009 Fed 100 winners: EPA’s O’Neill and McCaffery win

fed100webI mentioned that the winners of Federal Computer Week’s Federal 100 Awards were notified this week and at least two CJD nominees were winners: Navy CIO Robert Carey, and Frank DiGiamarino, vice president of strategic initiatives at the National Academy of Public Administration.

I have learned that two other CJD-favs have been recognized. Former EPA CIO Molly O’Neill and Mary McCaffery, EPA’s Senior Advisor to the Chief Information Officer. Both have been just remarkable in the past year — and past years. Frankly, as I said in my nominations , former EPA Deputy Administrator Marcus Peacock deserves recognition as well. EPA has been really innovative in how it uses technology to reach out to its multitude of constituents. They really were out when Peacock was the first government official to post a blog… there with the Puget Sound initiative two years ago…  and they have only pressed further.

The most remarkable thing about EPA — and EPA’s leadership — is they fostered an innovative environment where people were not afraid to try something new.

The recognition is much deserved.

I look forward to seeing the full Fed 100 list. The annual Federal 100 Awards Gala — the 20th anniversary of that event — will take place March 25.

Here is O’Neill talking about the Puget Sound initiative:
