George M. Low Award
The George M. Low Award is an annual award given by NASA to its subcontractors in recognition of quality and performance. NASA characterizes it as a "premier award". NASA's chief of safety and mission assurance, Terrence Wilcutt, called it "our recognition for their management's leadership and employee commitment to the highest standards in performance."
The award was named after George M. Low, a NASA leader and former administrator who spearheaded efforts to improve quality and mitigate risk after the disastrous Apollo 1 fire. He provided management and direction for the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and advanced manned missions programs.
