Three fed programs are award finalists

Three federal programs are among the 15 finalists in the Innovations in the American Government award competition, sponsored by Harvard University's Institute of Government Innovation and the Council for Excellence in Government.

The Veterans Affairs Department's National Center for Patient Safety program was a finalist for reducing health care errors by increasing system reliability.

The Health and Human Services Department's child welfare outcomes initiative was cited for protecting children and strengthening families by helping states to deliver services better.

Another finalist is the General Services Administration's FirstGov.gov portal, which searches and indexes millions of federal and state Web pages.

Five award winners to be announced Oct. 18 will each receive a $20,000 grant and $100,000 in cash.
