The following overview concerns the process for granting IIE awards. Awards granted by IIE chapters, regions, divisions, and societies may conform to different processes.
Members of the IIE Board of Trustees, Honors Steering Committee, and the companies or institutions they represent are ineligible for consideration for any honor or award during their term of office, with the following exceptions: the Fred C. Crane Distinguished Service Award, the David F. Baker Distinguished Research Award, the IIE/Joint Publishers Book-of-the-Year Award, and the IIE Award for Excellence in Productivity Improvement may be given to a member of the IIE Board of Trustees or Honors Steering Committee while in office. At any time this is done, the specific member of the IIE Board of Trustees or Honors Steering Committee will not be permitted to vote nor be advised that he or she is being considered.
Members of the IIE Board of Trustees, the Honors Steering Committee, those involved in processing (such as the director of honors) or any headquarters staff member may not be used as a nominator or reference for any nominee.
Members of selection committees will abstain from voting on any awards for which they are nominated. Members of selection committees will also abstain from voting on any nominations from the university at which they currently hold a position. A committee member must abstain from consideration of any nominee employed by his or her institution, company, or place of employment.
