NEW YORK, 13 September 2003 – UNICEF has received the 2003 CIO-100 Award from International Data Group’s Chief Information Officer (CIO) magazine, the leading information technology industry publication. This marks the second straight year that UNICEF has been acknowledged by the magazine for its resourceful information technology (IT) management and practices.

The award recognizes best-in-class uses of information technology by corporations and organizations throughout the world. This year’s award encompasses 100 resourceful companies and/or organizations globally.

“This year’s CIO 100 award recipients are being honored because their company/organization [has] demonstrated resourceful use of IT systems, staff and budgets,” said Abbie Lundberg, editor-in-chief of CIO magazine.

CIO magazine evaluated organizational resourcefulness in four key areas and awarded the CIO-100 honour to those organizations that distinguished themselves in one or more of the following areas: asset management (getting the most from existing systems); staffing and sourcing (using flexible, creative approaches to meeting personnel needs); partnerships (building internal and external relationships to deliver new projects or services); and value and governance (maximizing the use of IT assets, time or resources through a governance process, budget model or value methodology).

UNICEF earned the award for its strength in three areas: Asset Management, Staffing/Sourcing and Value/Governance.

CIO is read by more than 140,000 CIOs and senior executives around the world who oversee annual IT budgets in excess of $180 million.
