New York, 15 May 2012 — Ernst & Young LLP has been named the recipient of Project Management Institute’s (PMI) PMI® Distinguished Project Award, which recognizes successful projects that have promoted project management concepts, techniques, practices, or theories through the effective application of project management principles. PMI recognized Ernst & Young LLP’s Advisory Services for its work for the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF) on a Web Infrastructure Treatment Services Project (WITS).

“We’re honored to be recognized for this award and pleased that we could support our client,” said Mike Shaklik, Partner, Ernst & Young LLP Advisory Services.

Challenged with helping DCF implement a web-based electronic health records (EHR) system – the team from Ernst & Young LLP utilized its proprietary framework to advise on the $1.9 million project.

Ernst & Young LLP was presented with a 2011 PMI Distinguished Project Award on May 14, 2012. To learn more about this organization and the awards process, please visit their website at
