The annual DON IM/IT Excellence Awards recognize IM/IT projects, teams and individuals that have helped to transform the Navy and Marine Corps through information technology.Four individuals and eight teams were honored for their outstanding contributions to excellence in information management/information technology during the Department of the Navy Information Technology Conference.

N2N6 Enterprise Electromagnetic Environmental Effects and Spectrum Management Team: for its efforts on the Electromagnetic Spectrum Usage Roadmap, which will ensure warfighter access to critical electromagnetic spectrum resources, and the National Broadband Plan, which established an enterprise process to assess the technical, operational and financial impacts and feasibility of reallocating military and federal radio frequencies. The team's effort has ensured that Navy capabilities for training were not compromised, resulting in a minimum initial cost avoidance of more than $2.3 billion to develop new off shore training ranges and a minimum annual recurring cost avoidance of more than $300 million to train Naval forces farther off shore to mitigate the impact of lost spectrum and increased interference to commercial wireless service providers.
