Nominations accepted for Flemming award

Air Force officials are accepting nominations for the 65th Annual Arthur S. Flemming Award.

The award is sponsored by the George Washington University, in conjunction with the Arthur S. Flemming Awards Commission. It honors outstanding federal employees who have made significant and extraordinary contributions to the federal government.

Nominations are open to federal employees and service members who have at least three, but no more than 15 years of service through Dec. 31, 2013. Each major command, field operating agency, direct reporting unit and combatant command may submit one nomination per category. Individuals previously nominated but not selected for a Flemming Award may be re-nominated. Previous award winners may not be re-nominated.

The five categories are leadership or management; legal achievement; social science, clinical trials and translational research; applied science and engineering; and basic science.

Organizations and base-level personnel must contact their MAJCOM, FOA, DRU or COCOM for applicable suspense dates and additional information regarding nomination procedures. Additional guidance and nomination forms are also available at http://flemming.gwu.edu .

Completed nomination packages must be sent to the Air Force Personnel Center by Nov. 19.
