Are you an excellent acquirer of things for the government? Or do you know someone who is?
If you answered yes to either of those questions you might consider submitting a nomination for the 2010 Ida Ustad Award for Excellence in Acquisition.
The General Services Administration’s annual award recognizes an indivdual government employee who improved government contracting to deliver “more effective and efficient services to the American taxpayer,” GSA said in a Jan. 20 news release.
And by “recognize,” I mean GSA cuts that person a check for $5,000!
Nominations for the award, which is named in honor of GSA’s former deputy associate administrator for acquisition policy, are now open. But act fast, they close Feb. 16.
Nominees must be government employees in the GS-1102 (contract specialist) series and work for agencies covered by the Federal Acquisition Regulation. Applications must be approved by the nominee’s “head of contracting activity” (aka the nominee’s boss). The winner will be announced in May at the 2010 GSA Expo in Orlando, Fla.
