“NASCIO’s Recognition Awards program highlights leadership, innovation and collaboration,” said Kristin Russell, Colorado secretary of technology and CIO and co-chair for the NASCIO Awards Committee. “We can all benefit from the efficient business practices, quality information management, and sound technology policy, provided in this year’s nominations,” Russell said.
