The National Institute of Education (NIE) was awarded and admitted as the CIO 100 Honouree 2013 for her fifth time during the CIO Conference 2013 held on 13 March 2013 at Marina Mandarin, Singapore. The award was received by Mr Tan Hoon Chiang, Divisional Director, Academic Computing and Information Services Centre (ACIS) on behalf of NIE and presented by Mr T.C. Seow, Editor, CIO Asia.

NIE is now ranked among Asia’s top 100 organisations to have achieved excellence in the strategic use of information and communications technology (ICT) for business and operations. NIE has been awarded the CIO Award in 2003, 2005, 2011 and 2012.

The CIO 100 Award recognises business innovation and leadership, and is not a basic technology-oriented award. CIO 100 Honourees are chosen as role models for other organisations to learn from and emulate in achieving long-term strategic success.
