The Arthur S. Flemming Award was established in 1948 to honor outstanding federal employees. Recognized by the President of the United States, agency heads, and the private sector, the winners are selected from all areas of the federal service. More than 600 individuals have received the award to date. Nominees may include any career federal employee who has at least three but no more than fifteen years of government service.
