For more than three decades, the William Oliver Baker Award has served as a mark of excellence, distinguishing an extraordinary individual for their sustained commitment to excellence in intelligence and national security affairs.
Eligible candidates include members of the government, private industry, and/or academic communities who have devoted a substantial portion of their professional activity to intelligence and national security affairs. No time limit is set for the period of such service. Awardees are selected on the basis of:
- Sustained excellence in their contribution to intelligence and national security affairs over a considerable period of time, or a single achievement of extraordinary merit.
- Contribution in the scientific and technical disciplines or in the other fields essential to the enhancement of national security interests.
- Technical enhancement of unusual significance, management proficiency of a high order, or development or application of techniques that permit cost savings of a substantial magnitude.
Please send nominations, including the full name of the proposed recipient, a short bio, and brief explanation detailing why this individual deserves the award, including a description of career contributions, to nominations@INSAonline.org. Submissions are due COB on December 14, 2018.
The winner will be announced in February, along with details about the June 2019 award dinner.
