Each Grand Commendation is bought for a small sum of gold from the corresponding faction quartermaster. It is a heirloom quality item that must be used after purchase to take effect. Simply having a Grand Commendation in one's bag does nothing.

Grand Commendations are unlocked upon reaching revered reputation with the corresponding faction, and once used, double all reputation gains with that faction for all characters on the account, including the character who originally reached revered. This means that they effectively halve the reputation needed to reach exalted, making the climb from revered to exalted a little shorter (effectively 21,000/2 = 10,500 points) than from honored to revered (12,000 points).
The Dominance Offensive and Operation: Shieldwall reputation bonuses are linked, unlocking one unlocks both. This is also the case for the Kirin Tor Offensive and Sunreaver Onslaught.
