James Lager Wins 2009 PA TIMES Best Article Award

Washington, DC–The PA TIMES is pleased to announce that the October 2009 article “Have a Problem with Compliance?” by James M. Lager, has been selected as the winner of its 2009 H. George Frederickson PA TIMES Best Article Award. Lager is the deputy ethics counselor at the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO).

When informed of his win, Lager had this to say, “I was pleased to have the opportunity to add my voice to this important community of public servants, and grateful for the unexpected honor.”

Comments from members of the selection committee included their judgment that the article provided a different perspective from the usual nostrums, and that it offered some useful ways of thinking about how to improve organizational behavior and advance key organizational values, interesting enough to appeal to academics but grounded enough to make sense to practitioners.

Created in 2002, the PA TIMES Best Article Award has been presented annually ever since. In 2009, the award was renamed the H. George Frederickson PA TIMES Best Article Award, to honor former ASPA president and PA TIMES founding father H. George Frederickson.

This year’s award will be presented during the Awards Ceremony at ASPA’s Annual Conference, April 9-13, in San José, CA.

The 2008 winner was “Dalton, Georgia’s Response to Immigration,” by William E. Baker and Paul A. Harris. All winning articles are on the ASPA website at www.aspanet.org.
