Recognizing Excellence in Local Government Organizations

Cartegraph’s Excellence in Operations Management Awards celebrate the most forward-thinking, efficient organizations in local government. Through the use of modern technology, these organizations are finding ways to solve problems, work smarter, and improve their communities.

In 2016, did your organization...
  • Use data to make an informed decision or come up with a plan?
  • Streamline a process to become more efficient?
  • Take steps to be proactive instead of reactive?
  • Solve a specific problem using Cartegraph?
  • Engage citizens through technology?

If you nodded your head to any of those questions, you should nominate your organization for a 2016 Excellence in Operations Management Award.

Nominations are due on or before February 28, 2017. Winners will be announced during the Cartegraph National Conference in Denver, CO, October 10-13, 2017.

In addition to receiving an award (and earning epic bragging rights), winners will be featured on the Cartegraph website and in marketing materials.
