The Center for Digital Government announced the winners of its 2012 Digital Government Achievement Awards, designed to recognize outstanding websites and applications by government entities around the nation.

California won in 3 of 8 categories, capturing nearly 10% of all the awards given nationwide.  Including local government recipients, California captured over 25% of all awards given.

Statewide Recipients included:

In the Government‐to‐government category:

  • California Routing on Empirical Data (RED) Project
  • Disease Information Exchange (CalREDIE)

In the Government internal category:

  • California Secure File Transfer Service
  • California Data Center Retrofitting and Modernization Project (RaMP)

 California MyFTB Account for Businesses was selected as a winner for the Government‐to‐business category.

 The CalVet Mobile App Project received an honorable mention for the Driving Digital Government State government category.

These projects provide services to all Californians more effectively, more conveniently, and with enhanced functionality that has never before existed.  The RED project drastically reduced wait times on the 911 system, RaMP reduced energy usage by the state data center while enhancing security and effectiveness, and the CalVet Mobile App helps provide services to more California veterans.

These projects are a small sample of those implemented throughout the state to provide better services to Californians using technology.
