Pittsburgh, PA (April 15, 2001)— BidOhio, an Internet-based auction platform created by Grant Street Group for the Ohio Treasurer’s jumbo CD program, won its third national award when the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) selected Ohio to receive the Louisville Award for Financial Innovation. BidOhio has previously been recognized by the Association for Financial Professionals and MuniNet Magazine and is a semi-finalist for the Innovation in American Government Award given by Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.
“I am honored that BidOhio continues to be recognized nationally, especially considering the quality field of entries,” said Ohio Treasurer Joseph Deters. “But the real winners continue to be Ohio taxpayers and communities, both of which are well-served by BidOhio’s success.”
