We are already getting questions from folks who want to be certain they submit their nominations correctly and in a timely fashion, and we want to encourage those nominations for a number of reasons. For one thing, the awards give us the opportunity to focus on people who are making things happen in government. The nature of news means the press spends a lot more time and space focused on what is not working than what is. The Federal 100 program gives us an opportunity to change that. More importantly, however, we genuinely believe individuals make a difference. The force of individual management, leadership and dedication can drive important results, and the Federal 100 awards recognize women and men who demonstrate what a difference those efforts can produce. As you put your nominations together, here are some reminders and tips on what our judges look for in a Federal 100 winner: • Focus on an individual s accomplishment in 2012. This is an All- Star Team, not the Hall of Fame award, so don t dwell on long and faithful service. Be speci c about what the project encompassed and what the person did that was extraordinary. • The Federal 100 award is for work done in 2012. If the nominee is a previous Federal 100 winner, accomplishments behind this nomination should be substantially different from the work that was recognized in an earlier year. • Ask before you add someone s name as a supporting nominator. Every year we have at least one judge who is stunned to nd his or her name on a nomination he or she didn t know about. It almost never has a positive effect on the discussion. • If you are nominating an industry person for work done at a government agency, it helps to have government corroboration. If ethics make that dif cult, try to get third-party substantiation. • Previous Eagle award winners have received emeritus status and are not eligible for future Federal 100 awards. Nominations can be submitted at FCW.com/fed100, so please help us identify the best individuals in federal IT. We look forward to recognizing their work. --- ANNE ARMSTRONG email@example.com Help us identify the next Federal 100 Here are some tips for nominating movers and shakers in the federal IT community for recognition in FCW's annual awards program
