Army's Borland wins award at FGIPC conference; 13 intergovernmental projects get kudos for service

The Army's Dave Borland this month received the John Franke Award from the Federation of Government Information Processing Councils at the Management of Change Conference in New Orleans.

As the service's deputy CIO, Borland works on a number of Army projects, including enterprise architecture, network security and knowledge online programs. He has been a member of FGIPC for 10 years.

Community contributions

FGIPC honors members who contribute to the IT community within their agency and throughout the federal government. The award was named after the late Franke, a former assistant secretary for administration at the Agriculture Department.
