The session will continue the series of meetings that spotlight major New York State projects. This session will focus on two projects which were recently recognized with prestigious awards within New York State.

The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) was tasked with redesigning their external website to better serve their customer's needs. The result was a new portal which on September 11th was the recipient of the New York State Forum's Best of the Web Award. Don Bekkering from Garnet River, LLC. will review how DOT applied project management techniques to achieve their success.

The New York State Immunization Registry (NYSIIS) is a newly-integrated and centralized Web-based technology solution replacing three legacy systems, "Healthy Shot", "IRIS" and the "HUB", which provides NYS children centralized immunization tracking and monitoring services. Through the collaborative efforts of both New York State's Department of Health and the CIO/Office for Technology project teams, health care providers and schools can view an individual's vaccine history, with the goal of reducing vaccine-preventable disease and preventing duplicate vaccinations. At GTC East this project was awarded the Project Demonstrating Best IT Collaboration Among Organizations.
