Secretary of State online services wins national award

When you meet Secretary of State Mark Hammond, you wouldn't think tech geek, but his office's efforts to make information more accessible online are receiving plenty of recognition these days.

The South Carolina Secretary of State’s Office’s UCC Online program was honored with a Government-to-Business Digital Government Achievement Award on September 13, 2012 from the national Center for Digital Government, a national research and advisory institute on information technology policies and best practices in state and local government.

Hammond said the website "sends a clear message that we are business-friendly.  I thank everyone who worked to make this electronic filing and retrieval system a reality.”

The Government-to-Business Award, awarded to government agencies that demonstrate outstanding achievement in the implementation of creative information technology, was given for the office's website, which allows businesses and citizens to file, search and retrieve UCC documents electronically at

Back in July, the state's UCC Online website received an Elite Achievers Award from the South Carolina Chapter of Government Management Information Sciences.

In addition to the UCC website, the Secretary of State's Business One Stop website, which allowing filing of business-related documents online, is in its seventh year of operation.
