He received the award ye at the 2014 NASCIO Midyear Conference in Baltimore, Md., as a recognition of his “outstanding contributions promoting government performance excellence” through information technology solutions, policies and practice.
“It is my honor to present Dave with NASCIO’s prestigious NTC award,” said Craig Orgeron, NASCIO president and chief information officer of Mississippi. “Each year, NASCIO recognizes an individual who has demonstrated a clear understanding for the fundamental and transformational role that IT can play in efficient and effective government operations, and Dave is more than deserving of this recognition.”
McClure is well respected inside federal government technology circles for his development and implementation of advanced technology during his more than 30-year career.
