Governor Ralph Northam recognized Virginia government entities that have improved the delivery and efficiency of government service.
Roanoke County was honored for innovative use of big data and analytics for its open data application project during the annual Governor’s Technology Awards at the Commonwealth of Virginia Innovative Technology Symposium. The county also got an award for innovative use of technology in local government for the Mobile Incident Command Center.
Winners from state agencies, localities and educational institutions were named in nine categories as judged by a panel of Virginia government information technology experts.
“With these awards, we honor the innovative ways that state and local government and universities are using technology to solve problems, increase efficiency and reduce costs,” said Governor Northam. “From public health and workforce development to public safety and transportation, these projects represent the incredible talent across state agencies, localities and educational institutions in our Commonwealth. I congratulate each of our honorees for their leadership and commitment to making government work better for all Virginians.”
