Farley served on the 2017 Presidential Rank Awards (PRA) at the White House in Washington, D.C.  Panel members for the PRA are comprised of current or former leaders in the private sector, or former Federal executive leaders.  The PRA is one of the highest honors awarded to Federal career executives from the President of the United States.  They are given in recognition of sustained extraordinary accomplishment, leadership and innovation in the Federal Government.

The Civil Service Reform Act of 1978 established the Presidential Rank Awards Program to recognize a select group of career members of the Senior Executive Service (SES) for exceptional performance over an extended period of time.  Later, the Rank Award statute was amended to extend eligibility to senior career employees with a sustained record of exceptional professional, technical, and/or scientific achievement recognized on a national or international level.  Two categories of Presidential Rank Award are available: Distinguished Rank Recipients and Meritorious Rank Recipients.
