Air Force seeks 2017 NPSA nominees

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- Air Force officials are currently accepting submissions for the 2017 National Public Service Award.

The American Society for Public Administration and the National Academy of Public Administration established the award to honor individuals whose outstanding contributions and accomplishments allow them to be viewed as models of public service in and out of the work environment.

This award is open to both military and Department of Defense civilian employees. A committee from ASPA and NAPA will review nominations and select up to five award recipients who have spent a significant portion of their career as public service practitioners at the federal, state, local or international levels of government, or in nonprofit organizations that provided direct public service. NPSA winners will be those who have, on a sustained basis, done some or all of the following:

-Made a profound difference to improve service to the public
-Been willing to take risks to achieve change
-Fostered a more democratic society
-Served as a champion of social equity
-Changed the way a governmental organization operates so that it better achieves its goals
-Achieved substantial savings in government operations
-Developed a cadre of other government leaders
-Contributed to the communities in which they live

Those considering nomination or nominating another are highly encouraged to review past winners and submit nominees who have similar credentials. For a full description of the award or to review information on previous winners visit the American Society for Public Administration website.

Organizations and base-level personnel must contact their major commands, combatant commands, field operating agencies, direct reporting units or MAJCOM-equivalent agency for applicable suspense date and additional information regarding nomination procedures. Each MAJCOM, COCOM, FOA and DRU may submit one nomination. All nomination packages are due to the Air Force Personnel Center by Aug. 4, 2017.

Specific eligibility and application procedures are available via myPers. Select “any” from the dropdown menu and search “NPSA.”
