FAIRFIELD - CIO magazine will recognize Solano County and other members of the 18-county Welfare Client Data Systems Consortium as one of the magazine's 2008 100 award honorees.

The award program, now in its 21st year, recognizes organizations worldwide that exemplify the highest level of operational and strategic excellence in information technology.

Past winners include AT&T, Merrill Lynch, General Motors, FedEx and Dell. The consortium developed a technological solution called the CalWORKs Information Network to monitor eligibility and benefits, client correspondence, reports, and case management for public assistance programs.

The awards will be presented Aug. 26 at the CIO 100 Symposium and awards ceremony in Colorado Springs. They will also be featured in the Aug. 15 issue of CIO magazine.
