It’s that time of year again.

Starting today, the Partnership for Public Service is accepting nominations through Jan. 18 for the annual public service awards, known as the Sammies. The awards recognize civilian federal employees who have shown commitment to service and have made significant contributions in their fields.

Call to Service and Career Achievement are among the eight nomination categories.

Last year’s winners included two National Institutes of Health scientists whose research led to new cervical cancer vaccines, and an IRS employee, who developed the eFile system that drastically reduced the time it takes to provide tax refunds.
