The CIO 100 Award, which annually recognizes 100 organizations that exemplify the highest levels of operational and strategic excellence in information technology, was awarded to the U.S. Army Contracting Command (ACC). The award is especially meaningful in the Federal arena because typically only about five Federal organizations are honored each year out of the 100 awards given.
Speaking about the award, Gino Magnifico, CIO of the ACC, said “This CIO 100 award reflects the progress we have made in providing the technology platform that enables our acquisition specialists to provide world-class contracting support to the men and women of the U.S. Army.”
ACC personnel perform lifecycle contracting activities at more than 115 locations across the globe, including conflict areas and disaster zones. Staff purchase everything needed to keep the Army operational, including weapons systems, medical equipment, food, supplies, spare parts and a wide variety of services and commodities. The ACC Office of the CIO has responsibility for keeping the global command connected with Information Technology that provides secure access to vital data and applications worldwide.
ACC awards more than 260,000 contracts each year valued at more than $92 billion, which is equal to 66 percent of the Army’s contract dollars and 17 percent of the total dollars spent on contracts by the entire Federal government.
