CTO AWARDs

Deadline extended for CTO awards

The deadline has been extended for the 2012 Government Contractor CTO Innovator Awards program.

Nominations are being accepted through Sept. 7.

Each year, Washington Technology and the Northern Virginia Technology Council recognize the leading chief technology officers from a large, midsize and small government contractor.

The finalists and winners are evaluated based on their contributions to the success of their companies and their customers.

Last year’s winners included Tim Hoechst of Agilex, H. Gilbert Miller of Noblis and Neil Siegel of Northrop Grumman. Click here to read about their contributions.

Nominations can be made by the company, customers or business partners. An independent panel of leaders from the government contracting community will select the winners, who will be honored by Washington Technology and the Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) at TechCelebration, NVTC's Annual Banquet in October.

Nominees in each size category will be judged according to the following criteria:

Internal Contributions: Has the CTO introduced technology improvements or innovative usage of technology internally that had a significant impact on their company? Has the CTO’s leadership promoted excellence within the company? Contributions made by qualified nominees during the award period should include, but are not limited to: Increasing the company's revenue/profitability; winning new customers; expanding service/product offerings; improving company efficiency/productivity.

Contributions to the Customer: Has the CTO introduced technology improvements or innovative usage of technology that has had a significant impact on a customer or customers?

Contributions made by qualified nominees during the award period should include, but are not limited to: Implementing new capabilities to meet the customer’s mission; improving efficiency/productivity; saving and/or reducing the cost of operations.
