SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii -- Nominations are now being accepted for the 2012 Excellence in Federal Government Awards for military and civilian employees in Hawaii.

This awards program is sponsored by the Honolulu-Pacific Federal Executive Board Policy Committee and recognizes federal agencies and their employees.

Nominations are due to U.S. Army-Pacific by Jan. 27. The luncheon and expo will be held April 13 at the Sheraton Waikiki. More details are forthcoming.

The Honolulu-Pacific FEB holds this annual event to recognize exemplary federal employees for their efforts, leadership and/or initiative. As well, the FEB uses the event to assist federal agencies:

To celebrate innovation and quality work performed by federal agencies and employees;
To learn about other agencies' best practices;
To attract and retain talented workers through an agency expo;
To take advantage of free workshops; and
To promote the excellent work of federal agencies through local media.

Agencies can submit one nomination in each of the nine award categories that recognize individual and team accomplishments in 2011. No overall winner will be recognized in each category; instead, this year's focus is on acknowledging each nominee.

Every agency submission will receive an award for the specific nomination category and be recognized at the luncheon. Specific criteria are available at the FEB website:

The Excellence in Federal Government Awards Program is one of the FEB's most successful events of the year, typically drawing an audience of more than 1,200 awardees, their families, friends, managers and peers to the luncheon.
