The INFORMS Prize is awarded for effective integration of advanced analytics and operations research/management sciences (OR/MS) in an organization. The award is given to an organization that has repeatedly applied the principles of advanced analytics and OR/MS in pioneering, varied, novel, and lasting ways.

2018 Nominations Due December 1, 2017

The contribution will be judged relative to the impact OR/MS has had on the overall success of the organization. Thus, a multi-billion dollar firm that has a large OR/MS staff but integrates analytics or OR/MS techniques only occasionally might be ranked relatively lower than a small firm which uses analytics or OR/MS throughout its business. The award is given primarily based on the impact that OR/MS has had on the success of the firm.
