The Department of the Navy awards program recognizes and rewards civilian employees (and, to a limited extent, military personnel) whose performance contributes significantly to the Navy’s mission.
Good performance can be acknowledged in many ways, from offering a sincere "Thank You!" for a job well done to granting the highest level of honorary awards, to awarding cash incentives, and other ways. Recognition and awards are an essential component of any total rewards program.
Policy and guidance on this program is explained in the Office of Civilian Human Resources Manual, subchapter 451-1, and the Implementation Guide, subchapter 451-2.
