The annual Government Executive Leadership Award for distinguished service in a federal career will be given in June. Criteria include leadership in achieving public policy; in breaking down barriers between political and career executives and between the executive and legislative branches; and in improving the public's regard for government.
The award is cosponsored by the National Capital Area Chapter of the American Society for Public Administration. NCAC is also soliciting nominations for the Elmer B. Staats Award for Accountability in Government, which goes to an individual or organization excelling in studies or analyses of the effectiveness of governmental programs. Criteria include the innovative nature of the studies, their scope and impact, and recognition of their importance by peers in the field.
