NYCHA Awards

2007 Digital Government Achievement Award

NYCHA’s award winning Smart Building Technology initiative has been included among the Digital Government Achievement winners in the "government internal" category by the Center for Digital Government. This initiative encompasses the Computerized Heating Automated System (CHAS) and the Housing Authority Remote Monitoring System (HARMS).

CHAS will provide for the remote monitoring and management of NYCHA’s 195 major central heating plants through a web-based software on its wide area network. HARMS will bring the benefits of remote monitoring and management to NYCHA’s formidable elevator fleet.

The Center for Digital Government is a national research and advisory institute on information technology policies and best practices in state and local government.
