LPO received the award for its innovative use of BPM technology, provided by HandySoft, to streamline and Web-enable the loan guarantee application process. The Loan Programs Office accelerates the commercial deployment of innovative and advanced clean energy technologies in the United States by providing loan guarantees to eligible projects.

LPO initiated the development of the online portal in order to transform the loan guarantee application process from a series of complex manual steps of data collection and review to a user-friendly, Web-based, automated format with front-end data collection and back-end review automation. The online application portal has been well received, resulting in faster yet thorough reviews and greater visibility to both applicants and DOE management.

"This award validates the meaningful impact and innovation behind the Loan Programs Office's online portal," said Harry Clarke, CEO of HandySoft. "The portal demonstrates the successful and effective implementation of BPM technology.  We feel extremely proud to have been involved in this project and to have had the opportunity to nominate this worthy effort."
