The first annual Chief Officer Awards will recognize the most impactful and innovative executives in government and industry sitting in the C-suite. The awards aim to fill a gap in the market of showcasing the technologists, security experts and business leaders making waves in government contracting from both sides of the sector.
The awards will culminate in a May 20 ceremony and luncheon at the Ritz Carlton Tysons Corner, where the chosen chief officers will be recognized.
For the CTO in government award, nominations may come from peers, employees, supervisors and fellow government or industry leaders. This category focuses on government officials responsible for aligning technology-related decisions with organizational and departmentwide goals, ensuring open, digital and data-driven capabilities and policies where necessary.
Nominees range from long-term govies to recent hires. Achievements between 2019 and 2020 will be considered.
An executive and/or agency can submit nominations for more than one category, and self-nominations are accepted. Nominations should be no more than 500 words and include how the CTO solved a challenge(s) for the end customer.
