<p>In 1993, the IEEE Computer Society and the Software Engineering Institute jointly established the Software Process Achievement Award to recognize outstanding improvement accomplishments. This award is to be given annually if suitable nominations are received by the SEI before November 1 each year. The nominations are reviewed by an award committee of Barry Boehm, Manny Lehman, Bill Riddle, myself, and Vic Basili (who did not participate in this award decision because of his involvement in the Software Engineering Laboratory).</p><p>It is particularly fitting that the SEL was selected as the first winner for this award. They started their pioneering work nearly a decade before the Software Engineering Institute was founded, and their work has been both a guide and an inspiration to all of us who have attempted to follow in their footsteps.</p><p>—Watts Humphrey</p>
