At annual gala, GCN honors excellence in government IT




Less than a year ago the community held its collective breath to see what would<br>happen to government systems when 2000 dawned










 

Less than a year
ago the community held its collective breath to see what would happen to government
systems when 2000 dawned. When nothing in particular did occur, federal information
technology and program managers and their industry partners spent only a moment basking in
satisfaction. Then they plunged headlong into a new set of challenges.


We gather tonight in the midst of those challenges, which
in many ways are tougher than the year 2000 conversion. The issuesincluding
security, establishing effective online government, and hiring and keeping the required
talenthave no endpoint, no specific time when one can
collect a trophy and rest.


But we also have new tools to deal with the challenges.
For example, who could have predicted a year ago the growth of online reverse auctions,
purchases of services via the GSA Multiple Awards Schedule or tangible progress in
deployment of public-key infrastructure? Or, for that matter, the frank willingness to pay
hiring and retention bonuses to federal workers?


At one time, the advent of a new administration would have
caused doubt about the future of major IT programs. Today, both political parties have
openly acknowledged the need for online government and the investments to carry it out.


Tonight we celebrate the government-industry partnership
that is also required to effect progress, and we honor agencies and people with a record
of excellence in IT. GCN’s Executive Awards go to David Borland, vice director for
Information Systems C4 at the Army; James J. Jasinski, program manager of the FBI’s
Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System; and Renato A. DiPentima, president
of SRA Government Sector, SRA International Inc.


We also take pride in inducting into the GCN Hall of Fame
Alvin M. Pesachowitz, formerly chief information officer of the Office of Environmental
Information at the Environmental Protection Agency and now director, Information
Technology Consulting, Grant Thornton L.L.P.; and John A. Koskinen, formerly chairman of
the President’s Council on Year 2000 Conversion and now deputy mayor and city
administrator for the District of Columbia.


A final note: GCN’s parent recently renamed itself
Post Newsweek Tech Media Group. The new name signifies our renewed commitment to deliver
the most relevant and timely information products to our government and industry readers
and customers, whether in print, in person or online. Keep your eye on us.

Government Information Technology Agency
Awards


The Government Computer News Agency Awards
are conferred on federal organizations with a record of excellence in the application of
information technology to improve service delivery. Selections are based on group and unit
performance rather than on the accomplishments of single individuals.


 


Award Winners


Financial Resources Desktop (FreD)


Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms


Treasury Department


Acceptor: William T. Earle, Chief
Financial Officer


The creation and deployment of the FreD
system marks a major change in the way ATF conducts business. ATF is headquartered in
Washington but also has divisions in 23 cities, each with between 100 and 200 people.
Until implementation of FreD, ATF’s financial and purchasing processes were handled
by three systems. They worked well in a mainframe environment, but the bureau was moving
its systems to an n-tier client-server, open architecture.


The implementation of FreD required a
reinvention of ATF’s financial business processes, supported by a frame relay wide
area network that took nine months to install. Approximately 4,000 PCs with dial-up
connectivity were then rolled out in a 100-day period. Security encryption is WAN-based.


The FreD system is a decentralized
approach. It gives field offices greater flexibility in funds control and more ubiquitous
access to ATF’s corporate financial information.


 


Web-based introductory course to STIP


Defense Technical Information Center


Defense Department


Acceptor: Kurt N. Molholm, Administrator


An online, unclassified course gives
students a multimedia-intensive overview of DOD’s Scientific and Technical
Information Program (STIP) and is among the first such courses to incorporate streaming
videos, simulations and animation. The course objective is to develop awareness of where
to find DOD’s scientific and technical information, and the regulations governing
their use. The course was designed to keep the interactive features of more traditional
classroom training while eliminating travel time and expense.


Rich audio and video in the STIP course
enhances learning. Students encounter 12 embedded videos; audio is offered as a choice in
each of the seven course modules.


The traditional three-day classroom course
could accommodate 140 students. The online course is training DOD personnel at more than
400 percent the previous rate.


 


Project Firebird


Drug Enforcement Administration


Acceptor: Dennis McCrary, Deputy Assistant
Administrator, Office of Information Systems


Project Firebird is a decision support
application that provides DEA employees worldwide with a standard suite of office
automation tools. Firebird gives users access to specific mainframe applications, such as
case management, via the DEA intranet.


Under Project Firebird, the DEA has
outsourced the management of systems at several locations. The agency also has sought to
re-engineer several systems management processes to make use of best practices and
ease-of-use features. DEA gathered information, developed data metrics, calculated
efficiencies and studied what return it can expect on its investment in Project Firebird
The annual savings reaped by the program are projected to be $6.6 million.


 


Web-Based Error Correction Process


Envirofacts Warehouse


Environmental Protection Agency


Acceptor: Pat Garvey, Special Assistant,
Collection Service Division


This Web-based application is a tool for
Internet users to notify EPA of errors in data the agency has on regulated facilities.
EPA’s Envirofacts Warehouse stores data on more than 750,000 regulated facilities.
The warehouse has information from national databases on chemical discharges, toxic
releases, permit status, compliance information, Superfund site cleanups, drinking water
violations and many more categories.


The application allows the agency to
receive notifications over the Web, track them to ensure accountability and inform the
notifier when resolution has been achieved. The app can also flag incorrect records in the
data warehouse so the information can be corrected in the systems that report to EPA,
often those of state environmental departments.


 


NEXRAD Hotline


Commerce, Defense and Transportation


Acceptor: Bobby Harp, NEXRAD Hotline
Electronics Specialist, Department of Defense


The Next Generation Radar hotline was
established to provide fast, comprehensive technical help to thousands of field personnel
in the departments of Commerce, Defense and Transportation who operate and maintain the
NEXRAD systems worldwide. The systems are a complex mix of radar, computers, workstations
and communications equipment utilizing more than a million lines of code to identify
weather hazards.


The hotline team has helped field sites
restore or optimize operations quickly in order to issue severe weather warnings. More
than 5,000 workers at 304 field sites around the world depend on the hotline to provide
timely, effective assistance in order to accomplish their missions.


 


Natural Resource Information System
(NRIS)


Forest Service


Agriculture Department


Acceptor: Chris Risbrudt, Director,
Ecosystem Management Coordination


In 1997 the Forest Service initiated
development of a system for managing data about the natural resources on 192 million acres
of public lands. The data includes information about soil, water, vegetation, air,
wildlife and habitats, climate, and geology of national forests.


NRIS replaces more than 100 nonstandard
data storage and processing applications scattered throughout the agency. It provides a
data warehouse managers can use to collect, manage, and interpret resource information.
The Forest Service projects that implementation of the system will reap savings of more
than $500 million over 10 years.


 


Electronic Trial Card System


Navy


Acceptor: Scott Monroe, Lead Yard
Production Manager


Before the Navy accepts a new ship, the
vessel must pass a series of rigorous inspections known as builder trials. As ships are
built, inspectors examine hull, mechanical, electrical and combat systems. The inspection
process, in which spiral notebooks were used to record about 3,000 discrepancies per ship,
was plagued with problems.


To replace this cumbersome system, the
Navy instituted an automated data-collection system that would standardize the process.
This required the ability to collect data remotely and to connect to a central database.
Using handheld devices, inspectors can record data in hard-to-reach places and avoid
errors of transferring handwritten data to the centrally managed database. Use of the
devices also has decreased the inspection process from several days to a few hours.


 


Anti-Money Laundering Compliance System


Postal Service


Acceptor: Robert J. Pedersen, Assistant
Treasurer


One of the principal instruments used by
criminals to launder money is a USPS money order. They are easy to buy because a money
order of less than $3,000 does not require personal identification. But when postal
managers saw an increase in the volume of purchases of $2,900 money orders, they sought a
way to verify and combat this suspected means of laundeing money. The matter was quite a
challenge, since the Postal Service issues a million money orders a day from 39,000 post
offices.


While postal employees still are required
to fill out paper forms on money orders of $3,000 or more or any financial transaction
they consider suspicious, the information is now stored on the database USPS developed to
keep track of such movements. The system can follow a money order from point of sale to
cashing and helps investigators track down suspicious transactions without having to wade
through a mountain of paper forms. The database also helps monitor the compliance of
postal workers and managers with financial reporting laws.


 


Data Warehouse


Veterans Benefits Administration


Department of Veterans Affairs


Acceptor: Nora E. Egan, Deputy
Undersecretary for Management


Reacting to 1999 reports by the VA’s
Inspector General about VBA’s inability to deliver benefits in a timely, accurate
manner, the administration created a data warehouse in the newly formed Data Management
Office. The warehouse has dramatically improved the delivery of vital business information
to VBA business analysts, managers and executives.


Previously unavailable reports and
analyses have been automated and made readily available to end users. Information that
once took days or weeks to gather can now be obtained almost instantaneously. Analysis can
now measure performance in ways that were previously impossible. They can track successes
and potential areas of improvement more easily, while identifying special circumstances
leading to anomalies in service delivery.


 


Montgomery GI Bill System


Veterans Benefits Administration


Department of Veterans Affairs


Acceptor: Nora E. Egan, Deputy
Undersecretary for Management


When Chapter 1606 of the Montgomery GI
Bill was enacted in 1985 to deliver $100 million in benefits to 70,000 Reserve and
National Guard personnel, VBA’s Education Service put into place a rudimentary
mainframe-based payment system designed to last two years. Plans were to replace it with a
more sophisticated accounting and benefit system, but 13 years later this had not
happened, and the legacy system was falling apart.


In 1998, Congress authorized an 18-month
modernization project for the failing system. The Education Service consulted with end
users to determine what capabilities the new system should include and installed the
mainframe application in February 2000. The system helps to instantly compute benefit
payments and works with an imaging system to reduce paperwork and mistakes. The Education
Service has greater control of the system’s checks and balances and is able to keep
track of each recipient and each payment.


 


Executive Award for Excellence In Information Resources
Management


2000 Government Executive of the Year, Defense


In recognition of his leadership strengthening information
technology.


 


David Borland


Vice director for Information Systems C4


Army


Mr. Borland has been the vice director of DISC4 since 1994
and was appointed deputy chief information officer for the Army in 1996.


Among his recent accomplishments are spearheading the
opening of DOD’s Biometrics Center and increasing security of the Army’s
computer networks in part by obtaining increased funding for the Network Security
Improvement Program.


He is chairman of the Pentagon’s Operational
Requirements and Performance Board, and he jump-started the Army’s Enterprise
Software Initiative. Mr. Borland oversaw implementation of the Army’s Computer Base
Training initiative. And he has provided expert direction and oversight to the
establishment of a new project management office supporting the Army’s worldwide
public-key infrastructure and smart-card implementations.


Before becoming vice director, Mr. Borland gained
extensive experience in information systems technology and procurement, holding several
contracting management posts from 1976 through 1984.


He served as deputy director of the Information Systems
Selection and Acquisition Agency from 1984 to 1989, where he was oversaw all Army
information acquisition programs.


Mr. Borland served in the Air Force from 1966 to 1970. He
received a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Central Missouri State
University. He also holds a master’s degree in finance from George Washington
University.


 


2000 Government Executive of the Year, civilian


In recognition of his leadership in strengthening
information technology.


 


James J. Jasinski


Program manager, FBI’s Integrated Automated
Fingerprint Identification System


Mr. Jasinski has been an FBI special agent for 21 years.
Most recently, he has been the program manager for IAFIS, a $640 million project and the
largest information technology program ever undertaken by the agency. He has also been the
FBI’s chief contracting officer, a bureau litigation attorney and a field
investigative officer.


Before joining the FBI, he was an attorney in private
practice.


IAFIS is a marriage of telecommunications and computer
applications designed to deliver accurate, fast and complete fingerprint identifications.
IAFIS went live in July 1999 and has proven to be a powerful tool for civil law
enforcement throughout the United States. When a suspect is charged with a crime and his
or her fingerprint images are transmitted electronically to the FBI, IAFIS within two
hours provides a positive identification and complete criminal history if that person has
previously been arrested.


IAFIS also returns positive identifications within 24
hours on fingerprints submitted electronically for background checks. More than half of
all fingerprints submitted to the FBI for searching against the Criminal Master File are
these so-called civil prints. In total, IAFIS contains fingerprint images and criminal
histories of approximately 38 million people. It was designed to process 62,500 search
requests each day, but its actual performance has far surpassed that goal.


Mr. Jasinski is a native of Buffalo, N.Y. He received his
bachelor’s degree in philosophy from the State University of New York at Buffalo. He
earned a law degree from the Albany Law School in 1975 and was admitted to the New York
State Bar that year. Mr. Jasinski is married to the former Donna Heard. They have lived in
the Washington area since 1982 and have two daughters.
