Sher­brooke re­warded by fed­eral gov­ern­ment

Stanstead Journal - - AROUND TOWN - Sher­brooke

The City of Sher­brooke, along with ten other Que­bec cities, was once again re­warded for the ex­cel­lence of their col­lab­o­ra­tion when it comes to in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy. They re­ceived the pres­ti­gious Dis­tinc­tion Award at the 2013 Canada’s Gov­ern­ment Tech­nol­ogy Event (CGTE) which was held, last Thurs­day, at the Ottawa Con­ven­tion Cen­tre.

The eleven Que­bec cities, re­grouped un­der the Re­seau de l’in­for­ma­tique mu­nic­i­pal du Que­bec (RIMQ), took the award in the “Col­lab­o­ra­tive Ef­fec­tive­ness in mu­nic­i­pal in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy” cat­e­gory. The large cities in Que­bec have in­stalled a fi­bre op­tic net­work which al­lows them to share pro­grams used for pay­roll sys­tems and the mu­nic­i­pal court, among other things. This shar­ing has sub­stan­tially di­min­ished the costs of th­ese in­for­ma­tion sys­tems.

Be­sides Sher­brooke, the other cities that re­ceived the award were Gatineau, Laval, Le­vis, Longueuil, Mon­treal, Que­bec, Sague­nay, Ter­re­bonne, Trois-Rivieres, Boucherville, Brossard and St. Lam­bert.
