Federal 100

Fed 100 nominations: Time is running out!

Fed 100 logo

We extended the deadline for Federal 100 nominations through the holidays, but it's now time to get back to work -- and to get your last-minute nominations in while there's still time!

The deadline is noon ET on Monday, Jan. 5. The nominations we've received so far are truly impressive, but there's always room for a few more -- and there are a handful of agencies and firms that remain painfully underrepresented in the mix.

So get moving, and make sure the great work you've witnessed in 2014 is on our judges' radar. All nominations must be made online at FCW.com/2015fed100.

And here's one last recap of what it takes to make the Fed 100:

  1. Anyone in the federal IT community is eligible.
  2. The award is for individual accomplishments in 2014.
  3. Fed 100 winners go above and beyond -- whatever their level or rank. A fancy job title is not required, and just doing one's job well is not enough.
  4. Impact matters. The judges need to know not only what a nominee did, but also what all that work accomplished.

If you know someone whose talents, leadership and dedication are making federal IT better, please be sure they have the opportunity to get the recognition they deserve. Nominate them today!
