The Urban and Regional Information Systems Association wants to honor good government work.

URISA will accept applications for its Exemplary Systems in Government (ESIG) Awards through April 11.

The awards recognize achievements in the application of geospatial information technology that have improved the quality of government services. The award competition is open to all public agencies.

Applications may be submitted in two categories, single process and enterprise systems:

  • Single process systems: Systems in this category are outstanding, working examples of applying information system technology to automate a specific single process or operation involving one department or sub-unit of an agency. The system application results in extended or improved government services that are more efficient or save money.
  • Enterprise systems: Systems in this category are outstanding, working examples of using information systems technology in a multi-department environment as part of an integrated process. These systems exemplify effective use of technology yielding widespread improvements in the processes or services involved or cost savings to the organization.

Winners in each category will be recognized during GIS-Pro 2014: URISA's 52nd annual conference, Sept. 8-11 in New Orleans.
