The G-4 established the LTG Arthur J. Gregg Sustainment Leadership Award in 2015 to annually recognize individuals who made significant and measurable contributions to Army sustainment operations. In years past, the honor has been reserved for one individual; however, the award has been expanded for 2022 and beyond to most effectively recognize demonstrated technical and personal excellence.
This year, we’ve created three distinct categories, within which any given ACOM, ASCC, and DRU can nominate one individual. This means that up to three total nominations can be submitted per command. The categories are as follows:
1. Officer – one U.S. Army Logistics Officer, Warrant Officer, or Noncommissioned Officer (all COMPOS included)
2. Civilian – one Department of Defense/Department of the Army Civilian (all COMPOS included)
3. Legacy – one retired civilian or veteran who met the criteria set forth in the first two categories during their service
The nomination submission window for 2022 has been open since late-February and has been extended through 14 JUN. A detailed description of the selection criteria, documents needed to complete a submission packet for each nominee, and an outline of the evaluation process is attached above for reference.
You may send your completed submission packets to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no rank floor or ceiling; rather, nomination is encouraged for those who meet the high standards set forth in the selection criteria.
Award recipients will be announced via email to ACOM, ASCC, and DRU senior leaders and recognized at a to be determined event based on senior leader and awardee availability.
The nominees must be influential logistics leaders who have made unparalleled contributions to enhance operating efficiencies and improve resource management in support of Army sustainment and readiness. The following factors will be considered:
· Leadership: Creates a vision for the future force while motivating and inspiring people to engage in that vision. Exhibits the ability to effectively communicate.
· Influence: Possesses the ability to change or affect an organization.
· Operational Impact: Achievements have a measurable impact and make the connection between the implementation of military strategy to the tactical assignment of resources.
· Resource Management: Effectively anticipates requirements and efficiently allocates organizational materiel.

Selection Board/Evaluation Details
The annual selection board will consider all complete nomination packets submitted on time. The board will consist of the following members:
1. DCS, G-4 will provide one (1) each General Officer (GO), one Senior Executive Service (SES) DoD Civilian, and one Sergeant Major (SGM/CSM) to review and rank order each nomination packet from their respective categories.
2. Army Materiel Command will provide one (1) each General Officer (GO), one Senior Executive Service (SES) DoD Civilian, and one Sergeant Major (SGM/CSM) to review and rank order each nomination packet from their respective categories.
The voting members will electronically review and vote on all nomination packets within the allotted time as directed by the DCS, G-4 leadership.
The voting members will review all nomination packets and determine which nominee’s leadership, regardless of grade, component, or unit, had the greatest impact on their area of influence towards improving Army sustainment operations and enhancing Army readiness.
The voting members will rank order each nomination against all packets. The average rank will then be used to identify the packet with the lowest average. That nominee will then be selected as the winner for the LTG Arthur J. Gregg Sustainment Leadership Award. The process will be the same for all three categories.
