This year, the NGMA added a new award category, Electronic Solutions, to honor an organization, which has made a substantial contribution to the automated system(s) of one or more Federal agencies or Non-Federal organization(s) which has had a significant and demonstrated beneficial impact on the operations and/or performance of the organization.
