Government Computer News' June 21, 2004, issue, with a special report on efforts to integrate 22 agencies into the Homeland Security Department, won a prestigious Jesse H. Neal award last week.
Bestowed annually by the American Business Media association, the award recognized the 'best single issue of a newspaper.'
The Neal awards, begun in 1955, are for excellence in business journalism.
GCN's editors accepted the award at a lunch in New York to celebrate Neal award finalists and winners.
'Receiving a Neal award is a wonderful honor,' GCN editorial director Wyatt Kash said. 'It confirms the quality of the work our editorial staff does every day to give our readers the most accurate, up-to-date news, analysis and technical information. IT is an integral part of practically everything the government does these days, and the publication's efforts to cover those stories reflects that broad impact.'
