Maryland governor earns IT award

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley has been honored by the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) for his use of information technology. NASCIO gave O’Malley, its 2010 National Technology Champion Award the group gives out to “pioneers who promote excellence in both technology and good government.”

The group credited O’Malley, a former mayor of Baltimore, for his data-driven approach that’s been used in Maryland IT programs such as StateStat and BayStat.

“As governor, [O'Malley] has demonstrated he is a champion for technology by making IT an integral part of his management process, applying performance metrics to measure and continually monitor progress in a wide variety of statewide and regional programs,” NASCIO said.
