The Inaugural Excellence in IT Awards
Institute of IT Professionals

GOVIS is pleased to announce that we're partnering with the Institute of IT Professionals (IITP) and eight other IT associations to create the inaugural Excellence in IT Awards, kicking off in October this year.  These awards will recognise individuals and teams that have truly excelled in IT.

Nominations close of Friday July 25th so there is still time to nominate an achievement that merits recognition.  In particular GOVIS will be partnering with ITTP on the Excellence in Public Sector IT award.  This award is for an individual or team that has achieved outstanding results through technology innovation in any aspect of central or local government IT.

GOVIS would love to see loads of entries from across the broader Public Sector, so why not enter now?  Whether you want to nominate yourself or someone else who is doing great things in IT, entry is simple.   For more information on the process check out www.iitp.org.nz/awards and let's get involved!

GOVIS 2014 - Delivery@Pace June 19-20, 2014

Thanks for making GOVIS 2014 a successful two days.  The GOVIS 2014 Conference was held on Thursday 19th and Friday 20th of June, 2014 at Te Papa in Wellington.  The conference programme is still available on the GOVIS website and over the next week, where we have speaker permission, we will be linking copies of the presentations to each speaker.
