  • recommend or address, as appropriate, new awards or revisions of current awards to or from the Bureau;
  • have oversight, on behalf of the Bureau, of all awards made by IAF subcommittees to ensure standards;
  • select from nominations for awards having no dedicated sub-committee and recommend recipients to the Bureau (e.g. the IAF World Space Award).
