ACC recognized as one of the CIO 100

FORT BELVOIR, Va. "The U.S. Army Contracting Command has been named as a recipient of the IDG CIO magazine’s 2011 CIO 100 Award.

The 24th annual award program recognizes organizations around the world that exemplify the highest level of operational and strategic excellence in information technology.

The ACC Office of the Chief Information Officer has responsibility for keeping the global command connected with information technology that provides secure access to vital data and applications worldwide.

ACC personnel perform lifecycle contracting activities at more than 115 locations across the globe, including conflict areas and disaster zones. Staff purchase everything needed to keep the Army operational, including weapons systems, medical equipment, food, supplies, spare parts and a wide variety of services and commodities.

“When the command was established in 2008, our goal was to transform a widely dispersed collection of field offices and disparate contracting centers into a cohesive enterprise and technology plays an important role in this transformation,” said Gino Magnifico, ACC CIO. “This CIO 100 award reflects the progress we have made in providing the technology platform that enables our procurement and acquisition specialists to provide world-class contacting support to the men and women of the U.S. Army.”

The recipients of this year’s CIO 100 award were selected through a three-step process. First, organizations filled out an online application detailing their innovative IT and business initiatives. Next, a team of judges reviewed the applications in depth, looking for unique practices and substantial results. Finally, CIO editors reviewed the judges’ recommendations and voted on the final 100.

The 2011 CIO 100 awards will be presented at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colo. at the conclusion of the sixteenth annual CIO 100 Symposium and Awards Ceremony to be held August 14-16.
