Selection of nominees is done by the Nominations Committee while the old boys then vote from that list of nominees using an electronic voting system for purposes of transparency. The Committee then divides itself into sub-committees and co-opts other old boys with technical competence to carry out the process of identifying and shortlisting nominees.

A measurable evaluation criterion was developed to ensure that all names proposed/presented by these sub-committees are subjected to it. This was intended to remove personal biases.

Any name that is presented to the electorate is worthy/fit to be awarded in their respective category. The old boys however are the final decision makers rather than a small group of individuals that might or might not have the full competency or information to determine such a matter.
