CHIPS Articles: Wennergren and Lussier Recipients of Federal 100 Award

Wennergren and Lussier Recipients of Federal 100 Award
By CHIPS Magazine - April-June 2007
Federal Computer Week magazine presents the Federal 100 Awards each year to top executives from government, industry and academia that had the greatest impact on the government information systems community for the previous year. The winners' accomplishments were recognized in the March 26th issue of Federal Computer Week magazine.

The Department of the Navy is proud to announce that John Lussier, acting DON Chief Information Officer, was recognized with a Federal 100 Award for guiding the development of Navy policies for telecommunications, spectrum management, wireless communications and enterprise software initiatives. He initiated a telecommunications cost-recovery audit that identified cases of contract noncompliance, double billing and recoverable taxes.

Department of Defense Deputy CIO David Wennergren and former DON CIO, was recognized with a Federal 100 Award for leading DoD's identity protection and management Senior Coordinating Group, which oversees DoD's smart card, biometric and public-key infrastructure initiatives. He made communication and collaboration a key aspect of implementing DoD's smart card program, even before the federal government undertook a similar governmentwide program under the mandate of Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12.

Wennergren also received the prestigious Eagle Award presented by Federal Computer Week. Eagle awards are given annually to one government official and one industry executive for outstanding contributions to the federal IT community.

The 2007 awards were presented at a black-tie gala March 26, 2007, at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in McLean, Va.
