Calling for entries to recognise public sector stars

Calling for entries to recognise public sector stars

Entries are now open for the 2013 IPANZ Gen-i Public Sector Excellence Awards, including the new category recognising high standards of integrity and trust.

Held jointly between IPANZ and Gen-i, the annual awards recognise and reward outstanding performances and achievements in the public sector.

“The 2013 awards highlight the significant contribution that the wider public sector makes to meeting the needs of Kiwis,” said IPANZ President, Len Cook.

“At a time when Government is asking the public sector to provide more for less, the awards recognise a sector committed to achieving excellence, embracing innovative ideas, and demonstrating real leadership,” said Mr Cook.

“The newly formed category of 'Integrity and Trust' will showcase those areas within the public sector that have demonstrated the leadership and initiative to build public trust and confidence.

“The integrity of those who deliver public services in New Zealand is higher than almost any other part of the world. The work done by public servants deserves to be valued and trusted. The Justice Sector Award for Excellence in Integrity and Trust recognises the importance of that trust – and that it is hard won and easily lost.

“The awards are one of the few occasions for the public sector to celebrate a job well done. We must reward the creative spirit within the public sector, and showcase projects that are leading the world in the way they deliver services to the public,” said Mr Cook.

The eight categories now open for nomination are:
• Integrity and Trust (new for 2013)
• New Professional of the Year
• Improving Public Value through Business Transformation
• Working Together for Better Services
• Crown–Maori Relationships
• Networked Government
• Public Sector Communications
• Improving Performance through Leadership Excellence

The Public Sector Excellence Awards showcase the significant contribution of the wider public sector to meeting the needs of New Zealand and New Zealanders.

Closing date for nominations is 1 March 2013, with winners of each category and the Prime Minister’s Award announced at an awards dinner to be held in Wellington in July 2013. More information about the awards, including a nomination pack is available at www.ipanz.org.nz/excellenceawards
