Overview and Eligibility

The Commissioned Officers Association (COA) of the United States Public Health Service (USPHS) Civilian Outstanding Support of the USPHS Award recognizes civilians who have improved the performance and/or achievements of officers in the Corps. The person(s) nominated for this award have demonstrated leadership and excellence and acted “above and beyond” the call of their profession. Their outstanding contributions can be made in any area of the Corps activity, including: administration, science, policy, management, logistics, and response.

Eligibility: Nominee(s) considered will include federal civilian employees; however, that is not a requirement as there are many civilians not in federal government who interact daily with the Commissioned Corps.

Nominations are encouraged from all agencies (HHS and non-HHS) and shall describe how the candidate has met one or more of the following criteria:
· Contributions must support achieving the mission of the Corps
· Contributions must demonstrate a benefit to their Corps colleagues
· Contributions should reflect exceptional devotion to duty and be significant in terms of increasing efficiency and excellence
· Contributions may be sustained over a career or represent a single noteworthy action
