And the Winner Is…

A highlight of this year’s California Digital Government Summit in Sacramento was the Best of California Awards that recognized innovative leaders and projects in government technology.

For the past 17 years, the Center for Digital Government, a subsidiary of e.Republic, has held the awards ceremony as part of its Summit. The September 10 ceremony bestowed more awards to California cities and counties than to state entities, showing how innovative leaders and projects have permeated all levels of government.

State CIO and CDT Director Amy Tong and acting Deputy State CIO and State Technology Officer Richard Rogers congratulated each award each recipient on stage.
