Eagle awards announced

Mark Forman, associate director of information technology and e-government at the Office of Management and Budget, and Linda Gooden, president of Lockheed Martin Information Technology, won Eagle awards last week.

Federal Computer Week presents the awards to two individuals each year — one from government and one from industry — who made outstanding contributions to federal information technology the previous year.

Forman led the effort to translate the Bush administration's citizen-centric e-government agenda into 24 specific cross-agency initiatives, facing cultural barriers that focus on programs rather than on citizens, businesses and governments. Forman also worked to establish relationships with key security players to develop business cases for information security.

Following the evacuation of the Pentagon Sept. 11, Gooden and her staff of 200 were back in the building that evening to ensure that the vital data and communication link continued to operate. She also led the development of the largest pay and personnel system for the Navy, which will handle the payroll for more than 400,000 sailors worldwide.

The CIO Council chose the Eagle award winner for government, and the Industry Advisory Council chose the industry winner. This year's winners were selected from among the 2002 Federal 100 honorees and were announced March 12.

Last year's government winner was Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.), and the industry winner was Ellen Glover, then president and chief operating officer for Advanced Technology Systems.
