US Senator Daniel K. Akaka of Hawai’i was recognized yesterday with an Honorary Theodore Roosevelt Award for his dedication and lasting contributions to the federal merit system and federal workforce.

The award was presented by the Merit Systems Protection Board during a senate subcommittee meeting on oversight of government management that was chaired by Sen. Akaka.

“I am honored by this award from the Merit Systems Protection Board, one of the most important government agencies for federal employees,” said Sen. Akaka in a statement today.

Sen. Akaka said the laws the board enforces serve as key protections for the federal workforce while increasing government accountability.  “I am proud of our accomplishments for America’s dedicated public servants, and I am so pleased the MSPB will be here to continue its important work long into the future,” said Sen. Akaka.
