Technology enabling the business of government

Technology Innovation Showcase

State and local government agencies in Georgia are encouraged to submit projects for the 2018 Technology Innovation Showcase.

For the seventh consecutive year, GTA is sponsoring the showcase as a way to recognize innovative uses of technology to meet constituent expectations for services and information, improve operating efficiency, and conserve tax dollars. It's also an opportunity to share ideas, experiences, and lessons learned.

The deadline for submissions is March 9, 2018.

GTA is looking for projects in the following 10 categories that were completed by December 31, 2017:

  • Cross-boundary Collaboration and Partnerships
  • Cybersecurity
  • Digital Government – Government to Business
  • Digital Government – Government to Citizen
  • Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity
  • Emerging and Innovative Technologies
  • Enterprise IT Management Initiatives
  • Improving State or Local Government Operations
  • Information Communications Technology Innovations
  • Open Government and Data, Information, and Knowledge Management

Agencies may submit as many projects in as many categories as they'd like. Before deciding on a category for a project, you may want to read our category descriptions.

The online submission form asks for details about the project, including the level of innovation in addressing a specific business problem and the significance of the project to improving operating efficiency, saving money, and enhancing service delivery.

Projects selected for the 2018 showcase by the evaluation panel will be honored at the Georgia Digital Government Summit in Atlanta. In addition, showcase honorees will be included in the state of Georgia's Annual State IT Report, and they will be considered for submission to the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) for its 2018 State IT Recognition Awards, the Technology Association of Georgia's Excalibur Awards, and others.

Three showcase projects went on to earn NASCIO recognition in 2017, including a coveted first place award for the Georgia Division of Child Support Services. Projects from the Georgia Department of Transportation and the Department of Revenue were finalists in NASCIO's awards program.
