Public sector excellence awards well deserved

Public sector excellence awards well deserved

State Services Minister Jonathan Coleman has congratulated the winners of the 2014 Institute of Public Administration New Zealand (IPANZ) Gen-I Public Sector Excellence Awards.

“I would like to congratulate last night’s winners, and also those who were nominated. The IPANZ awards are a great way of recognising the innovations and excellent work that our public servants are delivering,” says Dr Coleman.

“These agencies are focused on outcomes, not outputs, and are making a real difference in our communities. It is clear that agencies are continuing to work more effectively to deliver better value and better results for New Zealanders.”

A total of 77 nominations were received by IPANZ. The 2014 winners are:

• Police Model: Prevention First - NZ Police (winner of the Prime Minister’s award);

• Ngāti Haua Settlement of Non-Raupatu Historical Claims;

• Infrastructure as a Service - Department of Internal Affairs ;

• Hutt Valley Justice Sector Innovation Project – Ministry of Justice, NZ Police, Department of Corrections;

• Transition: A Cross-Agency Leadership Development Programme – NZ Police, Ministry of Social Development, NZDF, Inland Revenue;

• Management Development Programme for Middle Managers - Western Bay of Plenty District Council;

• Safer Summer: Speed Enforcement Campaign – NZ Police;

• Alternative Environmental Justice – Environment Canterbury;

• Leading by Backing Others to Win – Ministry of Education.

The IPANZ awards promote excellence in vision, innovation, and achievement of results. They are also a useful way to highlight good examples of best practice which other agencies can learn from.

The awards were held on 2 July 2014 at the TSB Arena, Wellington. More information can be found at: www.ipanz.org.nz/excellenceawards.

Essentially, the case involved Google’s alleged abuse of the stranglehold it enjoys on the online advertising associated with its search activities. More>>
