Studies in excellence

Michael Cullen began his career as an environmental engineer, but he has ended up a program manager. Not only that, he is recognized as a very good one,managing a national system that provides the public with information on hazardous waste sites.

"It's really serendipity that I ended up in information technology project management," Cullen said.

Sandra Borden, on the other hand, started out in IT project management with the Navy and now manages a multimillion-dollar vessel-tracking program for the U.S. Coast Guard that plays an important role in homeland security.

Cullen and Borden are among six government employees selected by a Federal Computer Week panel of judges as being among the best IT program managers in government. This is not an exhaustive list
