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. Each major command, field operating agency and direct reporting unit may submit one nomination per category. Individuals previously nominated but not selected for a Flemming Award may be renominated. Previous award winners may not be renominated.

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 or DRU for applicable suspense dates and additional information regarding nomination procedures. Additional guidance and nomination forms are also available at http://flemming.gwu.edu.
