For the third consecutive year, the city of Phoenix has been presented the CIO-100 award, which recognizes organizations around the globe that excel in providing goods and services through the use of technology. The city of Phoenix is one of only 100 organizations worldwide to receive the award.
"Our employees consistently strive for excellence in customer service. To receive the CIO-100 award three years in a row is a tribute to the innovation and hard work of the staff in the Information Technology Department," said City Manager Frank Fairbanks.
Each year the award focuses on a new area. This year the city demonstrated excellence in integrated technologies and procedures to improve customer services.

"We're always looking for innovative ways to create value and serve our customers."
The 2002 CIO-100 Award is presented by CIO magazine. A panel of experts and CIO staff members examined companies that have established uniform, integrated technologies and processes across their organizations.
