NASCIO Presents Cathilea Robinett with National Technology Champion Award



May 3, 2007 By

Today, the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) named Cathilea Robinett, Executive Director of the Center for Digital Government, a division of e.Republic, as the association's 2007 National Technology Champion Award recipient in recognition of her outstanding contributions to advance public sector information technology initiatives.

"I am delighted to recognize Cathilea as this year's NTC award recipient," said NASCIO President and Michigan CIO, Teri Takai. "Her leadership with innovative programs like the Center's Best of the Web Awards and Digital Government Summits has been invaluable. Because of Cathilea, we have a new landscape in this country where best practices are shared between a diverse range of public entities."

Under Robinett's leadership, the Center for Digital Government has also developed a series of comprehensive longitudinal, national surveys -- Digital States, Digital Counties and Digital Cities -- to benchmark and track progress toward government modernization among political subdivisions. These efforts have created an IT knowledge base that is a leading resource to state and local government practitioners.

NASCIO presents the National Technology Champion Award on an annual basis to acknowledge pioneers who promote excellence in both technology and good government. Nominees may be federal, state or local officials or staff, such as a legislator, academician or an individual in the private sector. State chief information officers (CIO) are not eligible for this award.

NASCIO is the premiere network and resource for state chief information officers (CIOs) and an effective advocate for technology policies at all levels of government. NASCIO represents the state CIOs from the 50 states, six U.S. territories and the District of Columbia. Members include cabinet and senior level state officials responsible for information resource management. Other IT officials participate as associate members and private sector representatives may become corporate members.
