The DGAA is produced in
conjunction with the Center’s annual Best of the Web (BOW)
contest. BOW recognizes the most innovative, user friendly
state and local government portals, while the DGAA spotlights
some of the nation’s most creative, advanced government Web
sites’ applications. The Center received more than 300
combined entries for the awards programs.
"As a judge of the Best of the
Web for all of its nine years and a judge for this inaugural
2004 Digital Government Achievement Awards, I have a true
appreciation for these government organizations and the
professionals behind the scenes who built these incredibly
sophisticated, creative and effective sites," said Cathilea
Robinett, executive director of the Center. "It is a pleasure
to honor all of them with these awards."
The Center for Digital
Government is a national research and advisory institute on
information technology policies and best practices in state
and local government. The Center is a business division of
e.Republic, which publishes Government Technology
magazine and Public CIO.
