OVERALL SELECTION AND AWARD PRESENTATION INFORMATION
William H. Kushnick and John W. Macy, Jr. Awards Selection Process:
The Assistant G-1 for Civilian Personnel will convene and chair a review board which will screen submissions for these awards. Nomination packages for each award category will be provided to selected committee members in sufficient time for them to read and study the nominations. The committee members will then meet to discuss and reach consensus on award recommendations to be forwarded to the Army Incentive Awards Board (AIAB). The AIAB will review the board recommendations and will forward its selection recommendations to the Secretary of the Army for approval.
Note: Members of DA's Incentive Awards Board who serve on the pre-selection panel may not also serve on the final selection board for these awards.

Panel recommendations will be forwarded to the ASA (M&RA) for final approval.
