The prize was awarded thanks to its management within the Government Online program.
The Colombian Chamber of Information and Telecommunications, and the Ministry of Communications were responsible for evaluating the process and deliver the award.
Good service offered through the website www.girardota.gov.co meant this recognition for the Municipal Administration which positions it as a leader in information management and technology. Manage, inform, process and enable two-way communication with citizens were the elements that were highlighted in the evaluation process.
This recognition confirms the commitment of Mayor Luis Fernando Ortiz giving the community involvement in its management and progress program in order to "believe again". We have been concerned that girardotanos have available mechanisms to get them closer with their administration and activities related to public service," said the Mayor.
The criteria taken into account for this choice were: customer service, interactivity, content, structure, browsing, graphic design and functionality. Colombia´s Online prize is the only award that highlights the presence of digital content on the web and is organized annually since 1999.
