Administrator's Award

The Administrator's Award is a combination honorary and monetary award designed to recognize NOAA-specific contributions. The award consists of a plaque and $5,000.00. In the case of group awards, the $5,000.00 is split equally among the members. All awards are funded by the nominating LO/SO. Winners are recognized annually at a formal ceremony held in the Silver Spring Auditorium. Administrator's Awards are granted to individuals and groups; each winner receives an engraved plaque signed by the Under Secretary.

Areas in which significant contributions to NOAA programs will be considered for the Administrator's Awards include:
