Last night, we attended the welcoming reception for honourees of the GTEC Distinction Awards at the Ottawa Convention Centre. Three-hundred public servants attended; of those 300, 220 were honourees. A total of 39 teams and three individuals were chosen to receive an award.
Corinne Charette, CIO, was there to deliver a speech congratulating everyone on their hard work.
“It’s getting more and more challenging to deliver projects on time and on budget,” she said. But she added that Canadian public servants have been succeeding at delivering those projects, which is why competition for the Distinction Awards has gotten so tough in recent years.
It’s proof of dedication, excellence, and ingenuity on the part of public servants.
Honourees will receive their awards at the GTEC Distinction Awards Gala in October.
And in equally exciting news, we have learned that Steven Van Roekel, CIO for the federal government of the United States, will be attending the GTEC conference in October.
Congratulations to everyone for their hard work!
(For Corinne Charette’s take on the role of the CIO, please see her article in our September issue of the magazine.)
