Taoiseach’s Public Service Excellence Awards 2010

The Taoiseach’s Public Service Excellence Awards are held every two years to recognise and reward best practice in customer service and administration in the Public Service. To mark the presentation of the Public Service Excellence Awards 2010, my Department made arrangements for a special supplement to be published in the Irish Times on 13th July, 2010. It publicised the twenty award-winning projects, as a means of promoting best practice in the public service and informing the general public (and public servants) about progress being made under the Transforming Public Services programme.
