NASCIO 2012 Recognition Awards

ND CIO, Lisa Feldner, encourages your agency to nominate some of North Dakota's Successful IT projects.

This year marks the 24th anniversary that the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) is holding their Recognition Awards for Outstanding Achievement in IT. This competition is to show how innovative technology is used to benefit citizens, businesses and other government entities. The results of this competition are broadly distributed which can result in positive publicity for the State of North Dakota.

Last year, the Department of Public Instruction's Direct Certification project was chosen as one of the finalists in the category of Data Information and Knowledge Management.

Please Contact Us if you would like to find out more or discuss potential nominations.


The Vendor Registry section of OMB Central Services implemented a work request system in October, 2011 created by the North Dakota Information Technology Department. This system is used by state agencies to request vendor additions and edits, submit questions regarding 1099s, and purchase orders. We are elated with the cost savings of this system. The new system transfers necessary paperwork directly in to FileNet, saving approximately 3 hours per week in scanning and verification of documents. Not only are we thrilled with the saving of time, but the search capabilities have proven useful for both staff and agencies. Having a centralized location for all work orders has negated the use of individual email accounts. This has allowed Vendor Registry staff to process requests in a timelier manner and eliminate duplication of efforts with staff. Agencies and staff are able to search for requests by a variety of search criteria allowing for improved customer service. The time, paper, and labor cost savings are incredible.

If additional information is needed, please feel free to contact Vendor Registry at 701-328-2683.
