The Trump Administration this week announced a newly branded rewards program that aims to support and promote the work of federal employees.
“The Gears of Government Awards will recognize individuals and teams across the federal workforce, both within and across agencies, whose performance and dedication support exceptional delivery of key outcomes for the American people: mission results, customer service, and accountable stewardship,” a June 19 Office of Management and Budget memo states.
The awards program is modeled after the previous administration’s, “Federal Customer Service Award” program but invites all 24 agencies subject to the Chief Financial Officers Act to participate, instead of only 15.
Awards will be presented to individuals or small teams; individual awards recognizes the specific accomplishments and professionalism of workers, while the initiative award recognizes team efforts that promote an agency’s mission.
An annually President’s Award will also be presented to approximately 10 to 20 recipients.
The first Gears of Government Awards ceremony will take place in May 2019.
