Committee Member Special Government Employee (SGE) Performer The Committee is essential to maintaining an independent evaluation and selection process to recommend candidates for the National Medal of Technology and Innovation. The Committee works throughout the year to improve the process for solicitation of nominations for the Medal, recommending improvements to the nomination form and accompanying instructions. This work is done through phone calls, letters, and emails without formal meetings or cost to the Government. The Committee also reviews all nominations submitted each year(approximately 50). This review requires both technical and business background to assess the nominees' achievements. Much of the work is done in advance of the formal committee meeting by the members on their own time and without cost to the Government. During the one formal meeting held during the year, the members discuss the nominations for that particular year and reach an agreement on the ranking of the top nominations. Due to the extensive preparation done by the members prior to the meeting, the committee typically is able to conclude business in one meeting. 49b1dd1a-0a1a-40a7-a399-8e22fb7aed7c The Committee was established to assist the Department in executing its responsibilities under 15 U.S.C. 3711. Under this provision, the Secretary of Commerce is responsible for recommending to the President prospective recipients of the National Medal of Technology and Innovation. The committee's recommendations are made after reviewing all nominations received in response to a public solicitation. 9559da1d-297f-419c-ad8d-754f9036e90f Recommandations The Committee provides the Secretary of Commerce with expert evaluations and advice from individuals in the private sector and academia with extensive experience in technology commercialization, innovation, and use of technical human resource. Such expertise is not available within the Department of Commerce. Also, the stature of Committee members and the composition of the committee ensures balance, objectivity, and independence to the process. abece1be-3e9a-4133-bb06-cfa48b9647f8 Make, Accept, Implement f0721482-3d7c-498a-967d-cbef82f4deae 8414de06-fa04-40c7-9cc6-dab080e2dbca Recommendations Made Number National Medal of Technology and Innovation Nomination Evaluation Committee Department of Commerce Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 The Committee makes recommedations to the Secretary of Commerce who in turn makes recommendations to the President.
