PwC Program Wins Government Tech Leadership Award

PwC Consulting, a business of PricewaterhouseCoopers, has announced that eArmyU, the e-learning portal developed and operated by PwC Consulting for the U.S. Army, has won Government Executive magazine's Government Technology Leadership Award.

The category in which eArmyU won the award is for "achieving, through business process reengineering, notable improvements in administrative systems important to agency operations though not visible to the public." The award will be presented to the eArmyU team on December 4, 2001.

"We are very proud of this exceptional award for eArmyU," said Jill Kidwell, PwC Consulting partner. "Since its inception in December 2000, the eArmyU program has taken off full-speed to enroll soldiers and provide online courses and comprehensive support services to meet their educational needs. PwC Consulting is pleased to provide the cutting-edge design and technology to achieve a pathbreaking e-learning solution."

The Army University Access Online program, called eArmyU, developed by PwC Consulting's government services practice, delivers educational opportunities to soldiers anywhere, any time. It brings together an unprecedented collaboration of 23 colleges and universities and 12 leading software companies, offering soldiers more than 90 degree programs along with comprehensive educational support services. The result is a complete educational environment with application, registration, catalogue search, classes, tutoring, and library resources-all available in just a few clicks.

Eleven months after the contract award to PricewaterhouseCoopers, the eArmyU program is now available at three U.S. Army posts with nearly 11,000 enrolled soldiers. The Army is expected to offer online courses to an estimated 80,000 soldiers over the next five years.

Since 1991, the Government Technology Leadership Awards have recognized more than 180 teams for programs that have made a difference. This year, out of 266 nominations, only eleven were chosen to receive this award. GSA's Federal Technology Service evaluated the awards and a panel of federal experts selected finalists.
