WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - July 31, 2014) - Nextgov today announced 20 finalists for the Bold Awards, honoring those who have conceived and implemented innovative ideas in technology to improve government efficiency.
The Bold Awards are produced by Nextgov, the technology brand of Government Executive Media Group and part of Atlantic Media. Nextgov's mission is to lead the national discussion about how technology and innovation can transform the way government operates and serves citizens. Nextgov.com is the #1 federal technology website, engaging more federal managers (as well as federal technology decision makers) on a daily basis than any other website dedicated to the federal IT community.
The Nextgov Bold Awards recognize men and women who have taken risks to implement innovative program initiatives and policies to make government work better. The awards program seeks to showcase these efforts and inspire others.
"A key goal of the Bold Awards is to highlight rock-star innovators for their extraordinary work," said Nextgov Executive Editor Camille Tuutti. "We selected individuals who have helped solve some of government's most pressing challenges. These finalists have made transformative contributions to the federal IT community."
