Federal IT leaders receive AFFIRM awards

The Association for Federal Information Resources Management (AFFIRM) held its annual awards luncheon June 9 to honor outstanding leaders in the federal government.

The list of award winners reads like a who’s who of the federal IT sector.

Federal CIO Vivek Kundra won the organization’s most prestigious honor, the Executive Leadership in Information Resources Management-Civilian Government Executive Award, for his role in transforming the way in which the government acquires and uses IT. He was also recognized for launching the administration’s 25-point IT reform plan last December.

Robert Carey, the Defense Department’s deputy assistant secretary and deputy CIO, took home the executive leadership in information resources management-defense executive award primarily for his role as the fifth Navy CIO where he “championed transformation,” according to AFFIRM. 

Dan Gordon, administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, was given the leadership award in acquisition and procurement for leading the administration’s “Myth-Busting” campaign.  

Industry members also received awards at the luncheon. Anthony Jimenez, president and CEO of MicroTech, was presented the Executive Leadership Award for industry. MicroTech is a service-disabled veteran-owned small business and holds more than 100 prime contracts and 25-plus federal contract vehicles.
