The Statistical Partnerships Among Academe, Industry & Government (SPAIG) Award, established in 2002, is sponsored by the SPAIG Committee of the American Statistical Association (ASA) to recognize outstanding partnerships, as well as to promote new partnerships, among these organizations. The SPAIG Committee aims to identify, lead, and promote initiatives that foster statistical partnerships or collaborations between two or more entities across these sectors. The award is distinct from other ASA awards in that it recognizes outstanding collaborations between organizations, while recognizing key individual contributors.
