FGIPC honors Army deputy CIO; 13 projects also lauded

NEW ORLEANS'Dave Borland, deputy CIO for the Army, on Monday received the John Franke Award for his contribution to the federal IT community from the Federation of Government Information Processing Councils at the Management of Change Conference.

Borland works on several Army projects, including the enterprise architecture, network security and the knowledge online program. He has been a member of FGIPC for 10 years.
