It is important to recognize our employees for their hard work, dedication, and exceptional achievements. There are internal ways to recognize our outstanding employees but wouldn’t it be great to have your outstanding employee be recognized as the best amongst their peers. ASMC offers you that opportunity. Nominations are accepted in nine fields of comptrollership as well as a small team (10 or less) and a large team (11-20).

Who can be nominated
Any personnel in the Department of Defense or the United States Coast Guard (to include National Guard or Reserve Components) may nominate a person or team who has demonstrated outstanding performance, including exceptional achievements. Each nomination must be submitted via the ASMC Awards Online website by the 31 January 2018. The award justification is limited to the space provided, citing specific and factual details. Nominations should strive to include the most relevant quantitative and qualitative information possible focusing on the results achieved by the accomplishments. If an individual is nominated in more than one category, prepare a separate entry for each category. The online form must be filled out completely to be considered.
We ask that you not use acronyms in your write-ups and avoid phraseology specific to your organization since the judges are from all services and DoD and may not know the meaning of the word or acronym or have a different meaning to that acronym.  
Each nomination is judged on the following three areas
  • 500 words on Resource savings (describe monetary and non-monetary savings).  This is worth 15%.
  • 500 words on Complexity and Leadership (describe how difficult it was to develop and implement the effort and any leadership skills).  This is worth 35%.
  • 500 words on impact (describe the impact to the organization, community or service). This is worth 50%.
