State Services Commissioner Peter Hughes acknowledges the excellent job IPANZ has done in leading the Public Sector Excellence Awards during the last 10 years. From 2019, the State Services Commission will be leading the awards, which will be renamed the Spirit of Service Awards.
While the Spirit of Service Awards will continue to recognise and celebrate excellence in public service, the State Services Commission is planning to introduce a few changes. Watch this space!
The 2019 award ceremony will be held at Te Papa on Thursday 5 September. Nominations will open in March and close in June 2019. Register here to be advised as soon as applications open.
