The Digital Centers Strategy received the Award of Excellence (first prize) in the "Changing the Face of/The Changing Face of Orange County Interdisciplinary Design Competition" in the Millennium City category. The competition was sponsored by the Orange County Division, League of California Cities, UC Irvine, Orange County Transportation Authority, the American Planning Association and others.

The Digital Centers Strategy was awarded Honorable Mention in the Central Valley’s International Design Competition entitled "Housing the Next 10 Million" held in 2000. The American Institute of Architects and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency sponsored the Competition.

The Blue Line TeleVillage demonstration project won the 1997 Excellence in Innovation Award awards from the International Telework Association and Honorable Mention in the "Telecollaboration" category in the 1996 National Information Infrastructure Competition.

The Telework Facilities Exchange won an Excellence in Innovation Award from the National Telecommuting Advisory Council in 1994, and the lead department in the County of Los Angeles won a County Productivity Award in 1994 as a result of its participation.

In addition, The Blue Line TeleVillage was one of 11 case studies of transportation innovation included in a report entitled "Using Pubic Transportation to Reduce the Economic, Social and Human Costs of Immobility." The report, written by Crain & Associates, was published by the Transportation Research Board in 1999.

Based on the success of the prototype, the strategy was publicly endorsed by then U.S. Secretary of Transportation Federico Pena. A video tape of Secretary Pena’s endorsement is available for viewing.
