Executive Department employees who have been in state service for at least two years as of March 26, 2018 may be nominated for a Citation, except those employees currently holding positions to which they were appointed directly by the Governor, employees whose appointments were subject to the formal approval of the Governor and/or College Presidents and Agency Heads.
An individual employee may be nominated by a supervisor, peer, professional colleague or someone else who is familiar with the person's work. An individual may not be nominated by a relative or a subordinate, nor may a person nominate himself or herself.
A group of employees may also be nominated for its performance as a unit. If this is the case, and a group is selected as a winner, the group name is printed on the citation with each individual's name printed below the group name on their citation.
In citing the reasons as to why an individual or group of employees should receive a citation, particular emphasis should be placed on one or more of the following:
- Attainment of high priority agency objective(s);
- Exceptional managerial, organizational and/or communications achievements;
- Exemplary leadership;
- Achievement of significant improvements in productivity and/or cost savings in agency operations.
All nominations must be signed and the nominator's relationship to the nominee(s) clearly specified.
All nominations must be submitted to the nominee's Agency PRP Coordinator no later than May 18, 2018.
Once the Agency Selection Committee chooses its 2018 citation winners, Agency PRP Coordinators will enter all citation winner names into the PRP Information System by June 8, 2018. When entering the names of the citation winners into the system, please ensure the names are spelled correctly as they should appear on any certificates or publications.
Please note, copies of the nomination forms do not need to be submitted to HRD. Agency PRP Coordinator should keep on file at agency.
Nominations should reflect the diversity of the workforce (i.e., position level, gender, race, ethnicity, as well as individuals with disabilities and veterans).
