GeoPlace has announced that it has secured the backing of the Society of IT Management (Socitm), UK Location, the Local Government Association (LGA) and Ordnance Survey, as Award supporters for its annual GeoPlace Exemplar Awards.

Each of the supporting organisations recognises the need for accurate, up-to-date information on local addresses and streets and the impact that this has across the economy and the whole of the public sector. Knowing where people and assets are, makes a substantial difference to the efficiency with which public services are delivered.

‘The Services Award’, seeks to identify projects that assist with the streamlining and joining-up of services from different departments. Socitm’s remit is to provide a forum for the promotion, use and development of ICT good practice and for information enabled local public services transformation in the UK. By supporting this Award, Socitm underlines the crucial role of its members in employing address and street information to join-up and transform services.

UK Location is supporting the ‘Citizen Award’ which will be awarded to the organisation with the best example of a project underpinned by address or street data that delivers services to citizens. UK Location focuses on improving the sharing and re-use of public sector location information to enable joined up services for government, business and citizens.

The LGA, with its focus on supporting, promoting and improving local government is supporting the ‘Improvement and Efficiency Award’ which will identify projects that have led to efficiency savings, or innovation or improvement for local government. As local government has the statutory responsibility for street naming and numbering, the LGA is also supporting the ‘Best Example of Street Naming and Numbering Policy Implementation Award’.

Ordnance Survey’s role is to collect, maintain and distribute the most accurate and up-to-date geographic information of the whole country. Supporting the ‘Integration Award’ with its emphasis on how addressing and street datasets are linked to council services or local partnerships provides a natural linkage to its role.

The Awards celebrate excellence in address and street information enabled service delivery across local government. They recognise the vital role address and street information professionals play in local service delivery. They celebrate their achievements, providing external acknowledgement of innovation, creativity, best practice, hard work and achievement.
