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."[1]

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.[1]
