Superior Civilian Service Award

The Superior Civilian Service Award is the third highest Department of the Army honorary award granted by any Commander (Brigadier General and above) or civilian equivalent organizational heads.


  • All Army civilian employees paid from appropriated and non-appropriated funds and direct/indirect-hire foreign nationals are eligible for consideration.


  • Nominations for this award will reflect superior service or achievement of a lesser degree than that recognized by the Meritorious Civilian Service Award.

Note: In regard to approval authority, commanders have authority to approve awards based on the rank/grade of the position and not the actual rank/grade of the individual occupying the position. This applies to all high level honorary and public service awards.
