JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- Application packages for the 2018 General Larry O. Spencer Innovation Award, based on contributions occurring between April 1, 2017 and March 31, 2018, are due to the Air Force’s Personnel Center by April 20, 2018.  

This Air Force-level award recognizes an individual or team that demonstrates innovation to improve efficiency, operational readiness and replication of the innovation across the Air Force. 

Total Force Airmen -- active-duty, Guard, Reserve and civilian -- are eligible to submit applications, and teams must be led by a uniformed Airman. Organization and base-level personnel must contact their major command, combatant command, field operating agency, direct reporting unit or MAJCOM-equivalent for applicable suspense dates and additional information regarding nomination procedures. 

 

Each MAJCOM, COCOM, FOA or DRU may submit one nomination for an individual and one for a team. Complete application procedures and eligibility requirements are available on myPers from a CAC-enabled computer. Select “Any” from the dropdown menu and search “Spencer.” 

For more information about Air Force personnel programs, go to myPers. Eligible individuals who do not have a myPers account can request one by following these instructions.
