Hardik Bhatt, State of Illinois CIO, and the Innovation Working Group (IWG) are excited to announce a new employee recognition program.

The Innovation Awards Program is designed to stimulate a culture of innovation and consistently recognize innovation.

What qualifies as an innovation? Innovations must be an application of existing or emerging technologies in a new way that has significant value to the State of Illinois. The innovation can be a new idea, an in-process project, a proof of concept, or a completed project that has been finished within the last 2 years.
 
Who is eligible to submit a project? This is a pilot program open to all IT merit comp employees and CIOs throughout the state. An individual or a team can submit an innovation for consideration.
 
How do I submit an idea? Fill out the Innovation Awards Questionnaire to submit your project. You can submit at any time, and submissions will be reviewed bi-monthly by a group of technology leaders at our regularly scheduled CIO council meetings. The next CIO Council meeting is on July 13, 2016.
 
More information about the program, submittals and how the process works can be found on the Innovation homepage.
