The nomination form
It is important to provide full personal details of the nominee including the full name, home address and full position details so that the PSM Committee can assess the nomination relative to the duties that would normally be expected of a person at a particular level.
The nomination statement must contain comprehensive information on the services or achievement for which the nomination is being made. It should not be assumed that the committee has a detailed knowledge of the area in which the nominee has worked, or a full understanding of the significance of certain achievements. These services should be put into context in the nomination statement. You could use the space on the nomination form or you may wish to attach a separate statement (maximum 200 words).
To be properly considered by the committee, all nominations must be accompanied by referee statements which comment on the services of the nominee. It is also often appropriate to obtain referee statements from outside the agency, especially if the nominee is being nominated for outstanding services to a particular community or industry. If the nominee's services relate to the work of another agency, a referee statement from that agency may also help the committee in their consideration of the nomination. Three to four referee statements would be sufficient.
