Korea's Ministry of Public Administration and Security said October 15 that Korea carried off 4 sectors, including the grand prize, at the "FutureGov Awards 2010" in Malaysia.

This award ceremony has been held every year since 2005 by FutureGov, the biggest community for establishment of information-oriented public sectors in the Asia-pacific area to select the exemplary case and give awards. Around 870 projects from 16 different countries, including China, Singapore and New Zealand, were submitted to the event this year.

Among the projects submitted by Korea, a software named "E-Government Standard Framework", which integrated fundamental technologies that are needed to develop and run an e-government, swept 3 sectors such as the "Award for the government organization of the year" also known as the overall Grand Prix, the "Award for the leading technology", and the "Award for the Government Innovation" at once. Korea's National Computing & Information Agency, which is the world's first and now being operated by the government, has received an award in the "Data center" sector.
