Earl J. Bass e-Business Achievement Award
Honoring Current Contributions that Advance E-Business Message Development

Purpose
The ASC X12 Bass Award recognizes an individual's outstanding actions and activities in the e-business standards arena over the last 12-18 months.

Earl J. Bass, known by all as "Buddy," was the principal author of the first set of EDI standards manuals based on input from transportation industry work groups. He designed the format and specified the content of those documents with a clear path toward continuous updates. Hailed as one of the "founding shapers of EDI," Buddy's initial assignment was to ensure that the work group developed was presented in a comprehensive and understandable manual. That first publication, in July of 1975, created without assistance from computer automation and completed over three months, included forty-five transaction sets, sixty-eight segments, and 189 data elements.
