Organic Integrity Database receives its 2nd Award in 2016
The Organic Integrity Database (INTEGRITY) was awarded a U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary's Honor Award on September 13, 2016. This is the second award for the project in 2016. Intact Systems was also honored as part of the INTEGRITY team.
A Vibrant Partnership
The INTEGRITY team is a vibrant partnership that combines the expertise of members from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Organic Program and Information Technology Service, Harmonia Holdings Group, and Intact US.
INTEGRITY is a certified organic operations database established in 2014 with the aim to deter fraud in the organic sector by means of up-to-date and accurate information as well as transparent supply chains. Intact Systems contributed to the success of the project not only with its expertise in Integrity Management, but also with its extensive technical know-how. After less than a year of conception and development the first release of the database was in place in September 2015. Since then, the Organic Integrity Database has been constantly improved based on the feedback of its users.
Two Awards in One Year
After two years of hard work the efforts of the INTEGRITY team have been rewarded with two awards in one single year.
In June 2016, the INTEGRITY team won an Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) Administrator's Award for outstanding service delivery. And only three months later, on September 13, the team was also awarded a U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary's Honor Award for developing and launching the Organic Integrity Database, thus providing up-to-date information about certified organic operations to the public.
Intact Systems is very proud to be part of this hard working and visionary team, and thus also be rewarded with these two awards. Even more important is, however, that our contribution to this project helps to foster the integrity of organic operations and effectively helps to prevent fraud.
