The ISOA Stability Operations Awards Program salutes businesses that are going above and beyond the call of duty. These achievement awards will honor the leaders in the government contracting community who exemplify the ISOA ideals of accountability, transparency, and ethics. We look forward to recognizing companies for their superior achievement with a prestigious panel of industry and government professionals who will select the finalists and winners from a large pool of nominees.
Eligible nominees include corporate members of the ISOA who are in good standing with the industry. Non-member companies may apply. However, to be selected as a finalist, the company must join the association.
The ISOA Stability Operations Awards will be awarded to companies who consistently demonstrate commitment to accountability, transparency, and ethics in the stability operations arena in categories based on the size of your company – small, medium, large. The top award in each category will be presented as a “Vanguard” Award. Individual Awards recognizing sustaining support of ISOA and an ongoing commitment to the stability operations field will also be presented, for which nominations are not required.
Winners will be selected by our three independent judges and will be announced in May 2019. The honorees will be recognized at the 2019 ISOA Awards Dinner on Thursday, June 5, 2019, at the Marriott Marquis Washington, DC.
