Evans, London receive FCW Eagle Awards

Federal Computer Week awarded its coveted Eagle Award to the Office of Management and Budget's Karen Evans and CACI Inc.'s J.P. "Jack" London during the 15th annual awards banquet.

The Eagle Award is awarded to two Federal 100 recipients — one representing government and another industry — who made a particular impact in the previous year. The CIO Council selects the government recipient. The American Council for Technology (ACT) selected the industry recipient.

Transportation Department CIO Dan Matthews, vice-chairman of the CIO Council, said that Evans, OMB's administrator for E-Government and Information Technology, was selected because of her abilities to get things done, however difficult.

Evens, who is a career federal employee, said that she decided to take the political appointment because she believes in the work that is being done.

Evans, who was vice-chairwoman of the CIO Council before being tapped for the OMB post, also thanked her family for allowing her to do the important work.

Bob Woods, ACT chairman, said that London was selected for a career of service.

In his speech, CACI's chairman, president and chief executive officer, stressed the importance of the work that CACI does, especially for those fighting the war on terrorism and working to protect American freedoms.

In addition to the Eagle awards, the Defense Department's Blue Force Tracking system, which helps prevent friendly fire incidents in Iraq, was awarded FCW's Monticello award.

The Monticello Award goes to a Fed 100 program that made an important contribution.
