National Archives announces 2016 Digital Excellence Awards

The National Archives of Australia (NAA) has announced the winners of the 2016 Digital Excellence Awards.

The awards were presented to Australian National University (ANU) in the large agency category for its ‘seamless integration of digitalised processes and their Electronic Records Management System’; and the National Blood Authority (NBA) in the small agency category for its work on MyABDR, a patient interface built into the Australian Bleeding Disorders Registry.

The judges praised the integration of ANU’s ‘core enterprise systems’, and noted the results were impressive, ‘with improved decision making times and finance and HR system interfaces’. The judges also praised the NBA for taking a ‘user centred and agile approach’ that resulted in a ‘better service for MyADBR users’.

The Digital Excellence Awards were first presented last year. They recognise Australian government agencies who have shown ‘excellence and innovation’ in the ‘management, use and reuse of digital information’. For more information, visit the NAA website here.
