IJIS Institute Seeking Nominations for Innovation Award

 

Award recognizes groundbreaking technology advances in justice, public safety, or homeland security

 

Ashburn, Va., November 14, 2017. The IJIS Institute – a nonprofit organization, focused on mission-critical information sharing and technology innovation for justice, public safety, and homeland security – announces the opening of the nomination process for the Institute’s annual Innovation Award, recognizing advancements in information integration and interoperability.

The Innovation Award recognizes innovation that has contributed significantly to the advancement of integration and interoperability in a justice, public safety, or homeland security project. The Award honors the achievement of a team comprised of the industry solution provider and the practitioner agency implementing the technology. The deadline for nominations is December 4, 2017.

To be eligible for the Innovation Award:

 

Nominated projects must be integrated or interoperable justice, public safety, or homeland security efforts that have contributed significantly to the advancement of integration and interoperability by offering a solution that can serve as a model for other public sector agencies.

  • Nominated projects must have been in production on or before August 1, 2016. Generally speaking, projects at the proof of concept stage are not eligible. Successful pilot implementations may be eligible if the pilot is going to remain in use and if the scope of the pilot is substantial. Large, multi-year projects that have successfully implemented one or more stages of their project are likely, but not guaranteed, to be eligible.
  • The nomination process is open to any company.
  • The private sector nominee’s public sector customer/agency must be willing to participate in a phone interview with the award judges to discuss the implementation of the nominated project.
  • The winner of the award must be judged to be the best in class, consistent with the strategic goals and objectives of the IJIS Institute.

 

The Innovation Award, and any honorable mentions, will be presented by Ashwini Jarral, executive director of the IJIS Institute at the IJIS Institute Badge & Tech Benefit & Awards Dinner to be held on February 7, 2018, in Arlington, Virginia. The Benefit & Awards Dinner will be held in conjunction with the IJIS Institute National Symposium which will be held from February 6-8, 2018, at the same location.
