he Federal 100 recognizes individuals from government, industry and academia who significantly influenced how the federal government buys, uses or manages information technology.

The Monticello Award
The Monticello Award recognizes an agency information system that had a direct and positive impact on human lives in 2006. The type of information system is immaterial -- what matters is impact.
In 2006, Federal Computer Week chose not to give a Monticello Award. Instead, we recognized the many systems that helped in the response to Hurricane Katrina.
