Prime Minister’s
Awards

 

The annual Prime Minister’s Awards for Excellence in Public Sector Management aim to encourage and recognise better practice and innovation across all levels of Government in Australia.

The Awards have been hosted by the IPAA ACT Division since 2002 and are designed to honour the achievement of public sector work groups, units and teams rather than individuals.

There are four award categories: Gold, Silver, Commended and the Kennedy Award for small agencies who demonstrate excellence despite fewer resources. Two supplementary awards may also be awarded at the discretion of the judges (Collaboration; People and Change Management).

The 2019 Prime Minister’s Award winners were announced at a presentation ceremony held at Parliament House, Canberra on 13 November 2019.
