City of Rogers Receives Multiple Recognitions at ADGTA
Multiple City Departments Recognized for Using Innovative Technology
ROGERS, AR-- The City of Rogers has been recognized in multiple categories at the Information Network of Arkansas’s (INA) 2018 Arkansas Digital Government Transformation Awards (ADGTA). The Rogers Fire Department was received the Citizen Service Award for its use of the PulsePoint mobile app, the Mayor’s Office received a Digital Pioneer Honorable Mention for its work on various social media platforms, and the Community Development Department received an Efficiency Award Honorable Mention for its use of the SmartSheet Project Management Software. The ADGTA awards program recognizes government offices that have used technology to provide better service and reduce costs to taxpayers.
The ADGTA judges included members of the INA Board, the Secretary of State, the Chief Technology Officer, the Department of Information Systems director, the Chief Transformation Officer, and Governor Asa Hutchinson. These judges reviewed more than 50 nominations and chose the winners and finalists in each category, and presented them at an award ceremony on Sept. 14 in Little Rock.
“It’s clear our cities and counties are finding ways to make government work better and more efficiently,” Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson said. “It’s easy to talk about transformation, but transformation is hard work. The work these public servants are doing helps the people in our communities, and I am confident the cost savings and improvements represented by these award-winning initiatives will continue to inspire leaders from around the state.”
The goal of these awards is to shine a spotlight on transformative technology that is truly reinventing Arkansas government and the pioneering public servants who are driving it forward. For more information about the awards and a list of 2018 winners, please visithttps://ina.arkansas.gov/adgta.
