IRS, Army win E-Gov awards

The Internal Revenue Service received an award for its Electronic Tax Administration tool that created a national strategy to help its employees search an electronic network of information and data, officials at the E-Gov Institute's Knowledge Management Conference announced on Tuesday.

The tax agency was among four winners recognized by the KM conference for making key contributions to knowledge management in the federal government. The IRS was cited for its innovative use of technology in a knowledge management solution.

The E-Gov Initiative sponsors the conference, which is a division of FCW Media Group, publishers of Federal Computer Week and FCW.com

Other winners include:

American Association of State Highway Officials was cited for creating a knowledge management initiative. The initiative allows state, federal, local and tribal organizations a way to connect a large, diverse group of professionals who must adopt asset management to preserve the nation's transportation infrastructure.

The U.S. Army was cited for Project Exodus, Team C41SR. Project Exodus, based at Fort Monmouth, N.J., has a long-term objective to establish a common approach for harnessing and reusing knowledge across the entire Defense Department.

The Army was cited for its Battle Command Knowledge System, which established an enterprise knowledge management system that networks professional forums across all operations, training, leader and doctrine domains within the Army.

Award recipients were selected by a panel of leaders from the public and private sectors, who are actively engaged in knowledge management initiatives.
