Work-Links, a government-to-citizen Internet information delivery system designed by Lockheed Martin Information Support Services, was center stage at the e-gov 2000 Pioneer Awards Luncheon at the Washington Convention Center on July 13th. The Honorable Robert L. Mallett, Deputy Secretary, U.S. Department of Commerce, and Roger Baker, Chief Information Officer, U.S. Department of Commerce, presented the award.

Selected from over 100 nominated systems, Work-Links was one of three state and local solutions to receive the Pioneer Award for "an outstanding Electronic Government Best Practice application that has streamlined operations and improved Government services." The E-Gov 2000 Pioneer Award Selection Committee included representatives from the General Services Administration, the National Partnership for Reinventing Government, the U. S. Department of Commerce, and others.

Linda Renfro, president of Lockheed Martin Information Support Services commented, "We are extremely pleased at the national recognition our system has received. Work-Links, a Lockheed Martin One Stop Online solution, has really resonated with the Workforce community. It leverages the Internet and an innovative system design to help streamline service delivery, incorporate public and private partners, provide universal access, and collect and report performance measures. E-government is definitely the wave of the future and this is just one example of how we're helping our clients get there successfully."
