September 11, 2008

The Public Sector Quality Fair is an annual event showcasing service quality excellence within Ontario in the federal, provincial, municipal and broader public sector. At the 2008 Ontario Public Service Showcase, the Ministry of Finance’s project to implement GenTax®, dubbed MOST (Modernizing Ontario’s Systems for Taxation), won a Gold Award for Best-in-Class Performance and also received the Merit Award. The Merit Award was in the Government Modernization category which recognizes initiatives in which Information Technology has played a critical role in providing business value while enabling significant organizational transformation.

In addition, the project team also received the Corporate CIO Award. This award “recognizes projects and teams that demonstrate extraordinary success in developing and implementing the often-invisible technology and program infrastructure that allows the business of government to function effectively.”
