FCW : October 30, 2013
Editor'sNote 6 October 30, 2013 FCW.COM FCW has always maintained that people are what matter in federal IT. The tech is important, of course, but individual women and men are the ones who shape and improve the way government works. Given the scal and political landscape, that s especially true today. And yet those individuals are increasingly "rewarded" with furloughs, pay freezes and public disparagement when what they really deserve is praise and public thanks. FCW s Rising Star awards are one attempt to address this problem, and you ll nd pro les of 15 early-career overachievers starting on Page 24 of this issue. But the Federal 100 awards program offers the best opportunity to honor all of federal IT s top performers --- and nominations are now being accepted for the 2014 Federal 100. For 25 years, the awards have showcased the individuals whose talents, leadership and dedication are making the biggest difference. And that process begins with you: No matter how accomplished a candidate is, he or she can t win without being nominated. So please go to FCW.com/fed100 and get started today on your nominations. The deadline is Dec. 23, but time ies --- and who knows what the shutdown situation will be come December? Not sure what it takes to make the Federal 100? Here are four points to remember: 1. Anyone in the federal IT community is eligible. Generally, that means agency employees and select members of the contracting sector, but past winners have included legislators, academics, independent watchdogs and even a journalist or two. 2. The award is for individual accomplishments in 2013. (Great teams are being honored at the GCN Awards Gala on Nov. 19.) 3. Federal 100 winners go above and beyond --- whatever their level or rank. A fancy job title is not required, and just doing one s job well is not enough. 4. Impact matters. The judges need to know not only what a nominee did, but also what all that work accomplished. Additional guidelines are available at FCW.com/fed100. So nd the people you think should be among this year s Federal 100, and make sure we know about them! --- TROY K.
