FROM: Joshua B. Bolten Director
SUBJECT: Nominations for Financial Management Improvement Awards

The Joint Financial Management Improvement Program (JFMIP) is a cooperative undertaking of the Office of Management and Budget, the Office of Personnel Management, the U.S. General Accounting Office, and the Department of the Treasury, working in cooperation with Federal agencies, to improve financial management in government. As Chair of the JFMIP Principals, I would like to inform you that we are currently seeking nominations for the Donald L. Scantlebury Memorial Awards, which recognize distinguished senior executive leadership in financial management improvement in the public sector.

Since 1971, the JFMIP has sponsored an annual award program directed to excellence in financial management in federal, state, or local government. In 1981, the award was designated as the Donald L. Scantlebury Memorial Award in honor of the Chief Accountant at the U.S. General Accounting Office and the chairman of the JFMIP Steering Committee. Dale W. Sopper, Deputy Commissioner for Finance, Assessment and Management and Chief Financial Officer, U.S. Social Security Administration; and Carole E. Stone, Budget Director, State of New York were last year’s Scantlebury Award recipients.

This year’s award will be presented at the 33rd annual JFMIP Financial Management Conference on March 9, 2004, in Washington DC. All nominations must be completed and received by the JFMIP Awards Committee by no later than January 8, 2004. Nomination forms and procedures, and additional information including award eligibility and selection criteria can be found at the JFMIP website at

If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact Ms. Doris Chew, JFMIP Assistant Executive Director, at 202-219-0526 or
