CompTIA Public Technology Institute Solutions Awards


Has your city or county launched an IT, cybersecurity, or emergency preparedness initiative in the last 12 to 15 months? Has a tech project in your jurisdiction enhanced agency productivity or interaction with the public? If so, CompTIA Public Technology Institute (PTI) invites you to submit an entry for the Solutions Awards.  

The annual Solutions Awards recognize member cities and counties that have implemented or updated innovative technology solutions within the past 15 months that positively affected local government performance and service to the public.  

Entries for the 2022 Solutions Awards will be accepted February 28, 2022 through May 13, 2022 and the winners will be announced at the July 7th Members-only Tech Talk meeting.

We encourage members to promote this program throughout your jurisdiction. Multiple entries are accepted but each project will only be considered for one technology category. Entries from past award seasons will not be considered and should not be submitted.


Award Categories

Awards will be given based on jurisdiction population for the following technology categories:

  • Information Technology (telecommunication, cybersecurity, emerging tech, data/metrics, I.T. management, operations, customer service, and infrastructure)
  • Web Services, E-Government, Public Outreach, and Mobile Apps
  • GIS (Geospatial Information Systems)
  • Public Safety and Emergency Management, Community Resiliency

Award Selection Process

An independent voting committee will review all entries and select award recipients. When reviewing each entry, the voting committee will be considering:

  • How replicable is the solution for other local governments?
  • How can other jurisdictions benefit from implementing this solution?
  • How innovative is the solution?
  • How involved were staff in the development and/or implementation of the solution?
  • How much of an impact did the solution have on government services or programs?
  • One entry will be selected as a winner per technology and population category. Entries may also be designated as a Significant Achievement.
