Program Excellence 

Nominations Open for Aviation Week’s 2022 Program Excellence Awards


Nominations are now being accepted for the 2022 Program Excellence Awards, with a focus on innovation, interoperability, and speed. 

The annual program was designed by industry leaders to identify program and project management best practices and lessons learned. Aviation Week facilitates the process for these leaders, who comprise the Program Excellence Evaluation Team. 

Each nomination also is scored with finalists selected in August. The winning programs are announced at the annual Program Excellence banquet, this year being held Nov. 2 at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D.C. 

The nominations should be based on the past three years of performance – 2019, 2020 and 2021. There are two divisions – Prime Contractor and Supplier—as well as a Special Projects category.
