Thank you to those who have submitted nominations for this year’s Code 210 Annual Procurement Awards! We received several more within the past few weeks, but given how busy and distracted we all have been in dealing with the COVID-19 impacts, we are doing a “last call” for additional nominations. So if you were on the fence about submitting one or are now thinking of someone who has helped you and/or demonstrates the qualities captured in our award criteria, please take a few minutes to submit your nomination(s). Our organization works extremely well together to produce outstanding results, and your co-workers will greatly appreciate your efforts to recognize them! We will accept additional nominations through Wednesday, May 6 (click here for nomination form). As before, please submit your nominations to our Code 210 Business Manager, Lori Young, at Lori.A.Young@nasa.gov.
As you know, there is still a lot of uncertainty about the timing and ground rules for any return to work activity. One thing that I can tell you from the many Center meetings I attend is that NASA and Goddard will be extremely cautious in reopening the Center, will eventually do it in an incremental way, and will keep employee safety as the number one priority for all decisions. To that end, it is not clear when we may be able to actually get together for an Awards Ceremony, so we will be flexible and may look for a virtual way to present the awards, if necessary. I really look forward to these awards every year and consider them to be an important part of our employee appreciation initiatives, so we will definitely proceed but perhaps in a less traditional way (like many things these days).
In addition, I want you to know how much I think of all of you and hope you are coping OK with these current challenges. I know that everyone is working very hard (in fact it seems we are working harder now than before!) and many are juggling challenging circumstances such as caring for family members, helping their school age children, and in some cases, dealing with the loss of a loved one. Please take care of yourselves, take advantage of the various Center resources, and reach out to your managers and coworkers for support, as we truly are in this together. I really appreciate being able to talk with you during my virtual office visits (and if I haven’t joined your staff meeting yet, I will very soon), but I am looking forward even more to seeing you all in person, when it is safe to do so. If you have any questions or concerns that I can help with about anything related to COVID-19 or any issue, please do not hesitate to email me or set up a Teams call.
Thank you again for supporting our Awards Program and for all your fantastic efforts to keep work moving during these times!
