FGIPC honors two Defense programs

NEW ORLEANS'Two Defense Department medical programs have received 2003 Intergovernmental Solutions Awards given by the Federation of Government Information Processing Councils.

The Tri-Service Infrastructure Management Program Office and the Computer/Electronic Accommodations Program were recognized this week during the Management of Change Conference.

'These two programs continue to leverage advances in technology to increase their ability to better serve the military health system, the Defense Department and the federal government,' said James Reardon, CIO of the military health system.

The federation honored TIMPO, which provides a computing and communications infrastructure to the military health system, for its Lab Interoperability Project with the Veterans Affairs Department. The project enables the electronic transfer of medical documents between VA and DOD.

The Defense CAP supplies assistive technology and services to people with disabilities in the federal government. The program was selected for the ways it uses technology 'to quickly and easily fill the requests for accommodations equipment,' according to a Defense release.

The CAP office redesigned its Web site, at www.tricare.osd.mil/cap, in October so that federal users could order assistive devices and software online and also take a virtual tour of the CAP Technical Center at the Pentagon. The site shows customers a range of technologies that they can order electronically. Previously, such requests were received via mail and fax.
