Awards

The CSR team has consistently received recognition for our accomplishments as professional organizations and on behalf of our clients. CSR and our team members have won relevant awards and demonstrated achievement in a wide range of health- and public health–related topics. Since 1993, CSR has received six first-place Blue Pencil Awards from the National Association of Government Communicators for research-based publications targeting professionals and the general public. In 2003 and 2004, CSR received six national awards, including an Emmy Award, for public education products. And, in 2009, CSR received awards for developing e-learning and Web-based physician education tools. In addition, over the last 5years, CSR alcohol epidemiologists have consistently received “superior” award-fee ratings from NIAAA for their contributions to the field of alcohol research.

NIAAA Awards

For the past 41 years, CSR focused on providing high-quality deliverables and services to NIAAA under the AEDS contract. Under the current contract, our work is consistently well-received, resulting in “Exceptional” ratings in each of the Contractor Performance Assessment Reports (CPARs) to date, the highest marks for quality from NIAAA’s performance evaluation team, as well as high praise from NIAAA evaluators. We are proud of this tradition of excellence and are committed to providing this same level of service and exceeding expectations with the upcoming contract.

“Contractor consistently delivers high- quality research support services to the benefit of NIAAA staff and resultant NIAAA publications to the benefit of the research community.”
