University of Delaware Facilities, Real Estate & Auxiliary Services (FREAS) has implemented a new employee recognition program.  The program was created to celebrate the achievements of the FREAS workforce.  The awards are aligned to emphasize the strengths and best practices of the FREAS team.

The program is called the UD Blue and Gold Excellence Awards Program and recognizes the FREAS employees who make outstanding contributions in the areas of:

  •     Safety
  •     Superior Performance by a Team
  •     Superior Performance by an Individual
  •     Mentor / Inspiration / Motivator
  •     Client Focus / Customer Satisfaction
  •     Innovation
  •     Outstanding Contribution to Continuous Improvement
  •     Community Impact

Nominations for outstanding performances can be made by any UD employee, contractor or affiliate.  However, if you are an outside contractor or affiliate who does not have a CAS login, you will need to go through your Facilities contact in order to make a nomination. Nomination forms and criteria can be accessed directly using the UD Blue and Gold Excellence Awards link.

A selection committee will review all of the nominations that are submitted and select the best nominations to receive a Quarterly Award.  All Quarterly Award winners will be appraised by the selection committee to determine those individuals or teams who have earned the Annual Awards.  Annual Award winners will be recognized at the UDid It! celebration each June.
