Agree on the need to explain the criteria. Also would like to see them sorted by agency in addition to alpha. Homeland Security, OMB and GSA seem to dominate the list, which may say something about the focus of federal IT.
Kay Clarey has presided for a decade over a program, UFMS, which has cost the American taxpayers nearly a quarter of a Billion dollars, has never had an accepted business case in over a decade, has had numerous inquiries and *not* clean audits by OMB, and yet which serves only 6 of the DOJ's 40 components? It didn't come in on time. And it didn't come in on budget. In fact, for most of its life it didn't have a budget. And she's awarded this prize? To answer the previous question, the prize, in this case, was awarded based upon the smoke an mirrors writeup submitted by departmental bureaucrats who have supported this waste of funds for ten years. This is "Quicken" for the DOJ, it's not that hard, and it shouldn't cost $250Million to do. And DOJ shouldn't be rewarded for anything related to it.
